Misha Friedman‘s new project “Photo51: Is Corruption in Russia’s DNA?” is about photography’s power to draw out what is latent and make it visible. Like threads of DNA spiraling in ladder formation, Russia’s reliance on corruption for its basic functioning is both commonplace and breathtaking. “I knew I did not want the aggressive expressions of corruption; I could avoid ostentatious nightclubs, would not need to listen at keyholes, nor to sniff out connections with criminals. Really, all I needed was Russia itself,” Misha says. – courtesy of Misha Friedman
“Photo51: Is Corruption in Russia’s DNA?” will be on view, along  with an exhibition catalog designed by de.MO, at The Half King in New York City. Join the opening night discussion with Peter Klebnikov, Chief Editor at Environmental Defense Fund on Tuesday, December 18, 2012 at 7:30pm.
