Richard Davies


Contemporary European Photography


Richard Davies’ photographic survey of Russian wooden churches is a follow-up of the work of Ivan Yakovlevich Bilibin, who had done a survey about one hundred years earlier: “Many churches have been saved by dedicated specialists and enthusiasts, whose untiring work goes on. We hope that the photographs in this exhibition will help raise public awareness of the plight of these wonderful buildings and that more restoration projects will attract the funding they deserve.”
