Photographer Boris Smelov (1951 - 1998) was a legend of the St. Petersburg school of photography and received adoration from anyone ever connected with the art of "light-painting". This publication shows the images that he created of St. Petersburg which are not only remarkable photographs in their own right, but quite simply the most expressive portrait of the city made at the last century. The creative work of Boris Smelov is intimately connected with St. Petersburg, dedicated to St. Petersburg, and determined by St. Petersburg. At the same time, it approaches universality and his works stand alongside the most significant masterpieces of world photography. This illustrated book was published on the occasion of the exhibition Boris Smelov, March to June 2009, The State Hermitage, Saint Petersburg.
