The Mayor of Kazan Ilsur Metshin visited Farit Gubayev’s photo exhibition “The
Art of presence” at the national gallery "Khazine" and talked with
the author. The exhibition presents about 100 photographs included in the
photographer's album of the same name.
“I first saw your work in 1983. Since those years, I have been a fan of
your creativity,”- Ilsur Metshin said. He congratulated the photographer on the
opening of the exhibition and wished him new creative achievements.
During a tour of the exhibition halls, Farit Gubayev told the Mayor about
the heroes of the exhibition and the history of creating photographs. Ilsur
Metshin highly appreciated the works and noted that the photos of the composer
Sofia Gubaidulina could decorate the walls of the renovated Tchaikovsky Music
School, where she studied.
“No video will be able to convey the depth of the picture. The exhibition is
amazing. The works reflect the history of Kazan, the republic and the Soviet
Union,”- the Mayor noted.
Farit Gubayev presented Ilsur Metshin with his first author's “The Art of
Presence” album with more than 200 photographs.
