“CloseUpRussia” is a photography Program created by independent documentary photographers from Russia.

The aim of our joint work is to show life of our contemporaries, people who live on the vast territory of Russian Federation.

Our authors participated in such successful long-term photographic projects as “From White to the Black Sea” and “Invisible cities“, and continue to work on their own independent projects related to visual documentation of life in the regions of the Russian Federation.

A key goal is the documentation of everyday life of the country, as well as the systematization and archiving of all the material received, both in digital and printed form.
