March 7, 2020 in St. Petersburg in the gallery “ART LIGA” launched the exhibition “Life Cycle”, where, among other works, photographs by Viktor Lyagushkin are presented. His photos depict underwater biomorphic sculptures by St. Petersburg artist Denis Lotarev from his science-art project Biofilters.

Yesterday, November 4, our exhibition “Impossible Is Possible” opened in the House of Scientists in the town of Troitsk near Moscow. It shows photos from various projects: #Seagull, Genie Jar, Being a Dolphin, Princess of Whales. In total, 18 works of 60x90cm are presented.
The exposition aroused keen interest. Photographers who came to the opening were interested in how the images were taken, which cameras and lenses were used, and asked a lot of questions about the physics and technology of underwater shooting.
The exhibition takes place as part of the All-Russian tour of the Photoparade in Uglich and will last until November 14.
