Bridge in the village of Vyatskoye.
I was drawn to the intricate patterns of this elegant metal bridge with wooden bunyas (saunas) in the background.
In 2015, Vyatskoye was voted the most beautiful village in RussiaIn summer 2016 Aleksei Lobanov, a landscape photographer from Yaroslavl visited Exeter to photograph our city. His work is highly regarded and he has participated in many photographic projects and exhibitions, both in Russia and Poland. His images of Exeter show how he saw our city.

 

In January 2017 our member Marija Lees went to photograph Yaroslavl. Marija is an accomplished and creative photographer, a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society, member of Exeter Camera Club and an official judge for the Western Counties Photographic Federation. She previously participated in a joint project with photographers from Rennes, Exeter’s French twin city

A town with no bridge, separated by the Volga except in winter when the ice becomes their bridge.
During Marija’s visit to Yaroslavl temperatures were down to -27 and her images capture her exploration of a snow-covered city.

After the photographers had completed their projects a joint exhibition of fine images of great beauty was assembled from their work. It was then shown at the Museum of the History of the City of Yaroslavl from May 2017. Aleksei and Marija attended the opening ceremony, as well as members of our association and friends from Yaroslavl – Exeter Friendship Society.

 

The exhibition has now come to Exeter. The exhibition was officially opened by the Lord Mayor at a Private Viewing on 17 January, attended by leading Councillors and many guests including a number of our members. Aleksei came over especially for this. If you were unable to attend the opening, don’t worry. The exhibition will continue until 1st April and you can view at any time during museum opening hours.

 

As it is in the museum café you may like to drop in to view it and attend one of our first Tuesday of the month coffee meetings 14:00 – 16:00 on 2nd February and 6th March

 

Coffee meetings will continue throughout the year, but remember that the exhibition finishes at the beginning of April.
