The majority of Maria Snigirevskaya’s works are focused on the studying of light. The artist uses light and shade in a masterly fashion to create dynamic constructivist-like compositions with several conceptual points which reveal to the viewers the everyday life in its spontaneity and sensual vulnerability. Snigirevskaya applies this approach to the whole range of her work, and thus has managed to create a unified, cohesive and coherent collection of photographs which combine both rational and sensual aspects.

A unique knowledge of nuances of light, perfectly arranged compositions and flawless printing technique mark her works out from the Saint Petersburg-based artists of this period.

The display comprises over 120 still life, cityscape and portrait photographs.
