The catalog of the exhibition includes new works by the author and articles by American and Russian researchers of photography. “Gregori Maiofis turns to the tradition of  “Victorian Age” photography and wrapping in sophisticated clothes of that “epoch” author presents harsh criticism of the modern world,” writes Wendy Watriss, art director and founder of the PhotoFest festival in Houston.

Gregori Maiofis known for his work in the ancient technique of bromoil. He has a great experiment again and focuses on a new object – virtual reality glasses, which, by the will of the author, passes through spiritual genre scenes of “Victorian Age” photography. Some prints reach seven square meters.
