The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography is a non-profit organization based in Moscow, Russia. Since its inception in 2010, the Center is renowned for presenting an in-depth look into Soviet and Russian 20th century photography, promoting acclaimed and emerged foreign artists, facilitating the integration of Russian photography into the international scene. The center fulfills its aims through exhibition, education and publishing programmes.
Having organized a number of monographic exhibitions of foreign artists, the center aims to expand its international programme by creating conceptual exhibitions that would become a meeting ground for works produced by different artists and covering various countries and periods. It is important both to bring such international projects from abroad and to initiate them by the center's team, developing the curatorial practices in Russia and offering complex and multiple perspectives on pertinent issues to viewers.
The center's projects were supported by embassies and cultural center (the embassies of the USA and Switzerland, the British Council, Institut Francais de Russie, Polish Cultural Center, Czech Center Moscow).
The center's educational programme aims to contribute to a greater public understanding and appreciation of photography and create opportunities for communication and collaboration between photographers, curators, amateurs and general public
