Viktor Lyagushkin’s exhibition “Magical World of the White Sea” opened In Moscow park “Green River”. It will run until the beginning of April.
The exhibit presents 47 works, this is the most complete selection of underwater photographs of the White Sea.
On October 29, in the city of Rybinsk, in the Krista gallery, an exhibition of works by Viktor Lyagushkin “20 years under water” was opened, which presents the best photographs of the master. Dolphins and lion-fishes, mysterious depths of underwater caves, the Swan Princess and the Princess of Whales, amazing creatures of the northern seas and much more.
The opening went great, a lot of warm, good words were said. Thanks to the city of Rybinsk and the organizers for the warm welcome!
The goal of the “Until the Ice Melts” project, led by our Phototeam.pro team headed by photographer Viktor Lyagushkin, is to draw attention to the problem of climate change and the melting of the Arctic.
Here we have another recognition of the importance of the project: one more publication abroad, in the German magazine GEO Saison for October 2021, a note on the world’s first under-ice gallery “Until the Ice Melts”.
Coronavirus restrictions have eased a little in Moscow, and our PHOTOTEAM.PRO team dared to participate in the annual PhotoBookMarket 2021, which was held at Winzavod on September 26-27, 2021.
Our new book “White Sea Bestiary” (the author of which is the writer and naturalist Bogdana Vashchenko) was greeted with a bang, both market guests and venerable photographers participating in the exhibition with their books were interested in it.
We brought to the exhibition a signal copy of the collector’s version of “Bestiary” for our fans to browse through.
I think that without false modesty, the Bestiary can be called the number one book of the event.
A personal exhibition by Viktor Lyagushkin (Nikon Ambassador, National Geographic photographer, SUBAL Pro Team member and leader of our PHOTOTEAM.PRO) is taking place in the Moskvarium (Moscow, Russia) as part of the Gorizont ecological festival.
The exhibition titled “The White Sea: Man and Nature” presents photographs from the projects “Until the Ice Melts” and “White Sea Bestiary”. Bizarre Arctic animals coexist with humanoid demons. Thus Viktor shows the environmental problems of the northern seas.
The exhibition will run until July 4, 2021, admission is free.

This year 2021, our exhibition and sub-ice gallery “Until the Ice Melts” was closed on April 1. This is a little earlier than planned, but alas! Despite severe winter frosts and thick ice, everything began to melt very quickly. Spring came to the Arctic two weeks earlier than expected. The ice season is closed.
The Thomson Reuters agency picked up the news about our exhibitions “Until the Ice Melts” by Nikon Ambassador photographer Viktor Lyagushkin and “Deep Freeze” by artist Denis Lotarev.
