The Russian Photographer Evgeny Mokhorev.



FRAGILE is a film about photography in the Post Soviet Era in St. Petersburg. It looks at the bitter elegancy of this town, it’s citizen and the tender and graceful models of Evgeny Mokhorev.

The film accompanies Evgeny Mokhorev as he photographs people on the street in St. Petersburg in the tradition of Brassaï. In the next part he shares a deep insight in his way of working with nude models. The film features several series of outstanding and moving photographs by Evgeny Mokhorev about children and teens in St. Petersburg.


In between the movie shows further interviews with honoured Art Collector Joseph Baio (Aperture Foundation), Nailya Alexander (Gallerist of Evgeny Mokhorev, New York), Ekaterina Kondranina (Curator, House of Photography, Moscow) and Dr. Irina Tchmyreva (Art Historian, Curator, Moscow).

    The documentary is impressive because it shows the atmosphere during the shootings, the encounters of people, and being on the streets of St. Petersburg. It is a work of art in itself.
