The Rodinki exhibition Birthmark on the Map showed last week at the Pobeda/Victory Center in Novosibirisk, Siberia, Russia, before continuing to the region’s local museums…
Birthmark on the Map explores rural lifestyles and is a blog as well as a touring exhibition.
In April 2011, the Birthmark on the Map blog was short-listed for Deutsche Welle Blog Awards, an international competition of blogs and web communities. Birthmark was also voted number four in the Best Russian Blog nomination, right behind two blogs by Alexey Navalny and Lenta.ru. In 2012, Birthmark on the Map will be presented at the Head On photo festival in Sydney, Australia.
I’m very happy to say that my portrait of Uma has been selected to be part of this exciting exhibition.
