The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography is located on the territory of the former confectionary factory "Krasnyy Oktiabr". It takes the premises of an old mansion situated on Bolotnaya embankment and its fa?ade looks at the Moscow River.
The Center includes the exhibition halls, a photography gallery, a lecture hall, a library, a caf? and an art shop. All of them begin working on March 4, 2010.
The Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography is a platform, which is designed for working with professional photographers, photographic collections, photo exhibitions and photo galleries. The Center plans to hold exhibitions, prepared by its own curators, as well as to provide facilities to other interesting projects in this area.
The qualified crew and the extensive experience in organizing activities related to photography, can count on the fact that the Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography attracts attention of Russian and foreign art lovers.
In addition to regular photographic exhibitions, the Center will engage in teaching, researching activities, conducting its own publishing program and forming the basis for creating "The Russian Museum of Photography" in the nearest future. To this goal, soon in the Center there'll be created "The Lumiere Brothers Fund of Photography".
The idea of the center was taken by the owners of "The Lumiere Brothers Gallery for Photography" Natalia Grigorieva and Edward Litvinskiy.
"We need an institution that allows to be seriously fond of the legacy of Russia and Soviet photography: to demonstrate it in the museum, to collect material for its research, to publish books, photo albums, to popularize the photography, attracting well-known practitioners and theorists for conducting master classes and lectures. All photographic fund accumulated during the existence of "The Lumiere Brothers Gallery for Photography" will be handed over to the Center. The work began 10 years ago, will continue at a new level "- Natalia Grigorieva says so about the project.
