Vladimir Sichov made his way from Soviet underground to French fashion houses, although his name is virtually unknown to Russian audience. The first retrospective of Vladimir Sichov in Saint Petersburg includes more than 50 photographs, produced by the master between the 1970s and 1990s. They depict everyday life in USSR, exhibition openings, and portraits of nonconformist artists (Ilya Kabakov, Ilya Glazunov). Photographs from the French period, 1980s — 1990s, captured on film many prominent figures of the world culture: Karl Lagerfeld, Yves Saint Laurent, Sonia Rykiel, Kenzō Takada, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Helmut Newton, and Mikhail Baryshnikov.


The exhibition has been arranged for display in Russia by law firm “TM-Dedenсe.”
