The exhibition of the American photographer Jock Sturges "Without embarrassment 2.0" in the Center of Photography of the Lumiere Brothers was extended for five days due to a great rush among Muscovites, the press service of the Center said on Tuesday.
The exhibition was due to close on January 8. "The exhibition will be prolonged until January 13. Due to its popularity among the city's residents, we decided to close the exhibition five days later so that everyone who wanted it could just visit it," the press service said.
In 2016, the exhibition Sturges had to be closed two weeks after the opening day, despite the objections of connoisseurs of photography, who did not have time to get acquainted with the project. The reason for the closure was the appeal of Deputy Yelena Mizulina, who saw photos of Sturges, on which the nudist community was removed, signs of child pornography. As a result, judicial experts recognized "the complete absence of signs of crime and the high artistic level of the works exhibited at the exhibition."
The project "Without embarrassment" was opened in early September 2016. It consisted of photographs of the nudist families of France, Northern California and Ireland, with whom Sturgz was friendly and communicating. The author photographed them throughout his long creative career. Starting with series in the 1970s, Sturges captured three generations of models. Frames revealed their beauty, the girls voluntarily and without embarrassment posed to the photographer.
