Exhibition "BAM - 45 years"
2019 is a jubilee year for the most famous and large-scale construction project in the USSR, one of the few that have continued to develop today. This year marks the 45th anniversary of the construction of the Baikal-Amur Mainline.
This event is dedicated to the multimedia project "BAM-45 Years", which includes a photo exhibition with a catalog, photo album, documentary film and a special Internet resource bam45.rf.
The aim of the project is to show a modern image of this most important transport and social structure that connects the vast regions of Russia. The project is based on the photographs of three famous Russian photographers - Sergey Kivrin, Andrey Golovanov and Stanislav Zalesov, made in the year significant for the highway. Each of them saw the BAM in its own way, and their works complement each other.
The focus of the cameras is on cities and stations, bridges and tunnels, ridges and passes, people living and working on the Baikal-Amur Mainline. Filming was carried out for more than half a year throughout the entire length of the railway line fr om Taishet to the Soviet harbor. Photographers visited such industrial centers of the railway as Komsomolsk-on-Amur and small villages like Zvezdny, wh ere in spring 1974 a detachment of pioneer builders landed in the untouched taiga. Shooting took place in different seasons, photographers worked in difficult conditions, sometimes reminiscent of the difficult history of construction of the legendary railway. How the shooting was conducted is reflected in the documentary film shot during the work on the project. All the photos were collected in a single interactive photobank and are available on the BAM-45 Years project website - www.бам45.рф
More than 250 photos were selected for a gift album. Fifty of them allow you to see more than what is shown on them, thanks to the "augmented reality" function.
