"Winterreise" is the "Winter Journey" to St. Petersburg accompanied by Schubert’s music and falling snow.
In his work the St. Petersburg photographer, Dmitry Sirotkin, addresses the eternal subject of human existence. The photos presented at the exhibition reflect the artist’s view of the world stiffened with cold, where man is doomed to solitude and emptiness. The inhabitants of the foggy and snowy city wandering aimlessly through the elusive mirage of embankments and squares, hurrying somewhere, are immersed in contemplation. They are lost in space and time becoming prisoners of the St. Petersburg phantasmagoria.
