"Northern Flowers" to be on display in the Presidential Library in honor of Norilsk anniversary

17 July 2018

July 17, 2018 at 15:00 the Presidential Library will host the "Northern Flowers" exhibition opening. The exposition has been formed under the auspices of “Norilsk Nickel” and is dedicated to the 65th anniversary of Norilsk, the world's northernmost city with the resident population of over 100,000 people.

On plasma panels of the multimedia gallery, the Presidential Library visitors will watch Norilsk from an unexpected perspective: not the technological power of one of the world's largest mining and metal producing plants, but the fragile and delicate nature of this harsh northern region, the everyday life of its inhabitants.

Marina Peshkova, the photographer of “Norilsk Nickel”, notes: "I did not choose this city; rather, it chose me to show its atmosphere, colors, streets, traffic, recorded his sounds, showed people tired or inspired by hope, found beautiful moments, "northern flowers" during workaday. I'm in love with this city, so I see these "flowers" everywhere".

The exposition provides photographs of different genres - from reportage to art. This is the verge of a kaleidoscope of impressions of Norilsk: in addition to landscapes, amazing and unexpectedly rich flora and fauna, Marina Peshkova captured everyday scenes, created portraits of Norilsk citizens. Guests of the Presidential Library will have the opportunity to make a kind of photo tour, get to know the region and its inhabitants, and, thus, join the celebration of the city's anniversary.
