PHOTO EXHIBITION "SOVIET PRESENCE"
Victor Boyko is a well-known event and celebrity portrait photographer, regular contributor for such magazines as Vogue, GQ, Tatler and InStyle. Residing in Moscow, Victor travels to Paris and Milan fashion weeks as a runway photographer contributing to the Getty Images agency.
While generally shooting in crowded environments with loud music and champagne, Victor's "other side" in photography lies deep in the absence of people around. His works of Moscow' industrial plants and factories has been exhibited in the Museum of Moscow in 2014. For the past two years Victor has been traveling through Eastern Europe and Asia by dirt roads and forests guided only by GPS to shoot the remnants of Soviet military bases. Once the outposts of extreme might and important deterrents in the times of Cold War, they generally are derelict and stay in decay since the dissolution of Soviet Union.
