Igor Gnevashev (1936-2016) came to photography during the epoch of Khrushchev Thaw, but even for that period there was too much truth in photos taken by him. Rolan Bykov called his works “the mastery of simplicity”; unfortunately leading magazines were not ready for such kind of art. He started to document filming and worked with Sergey Bondarchuk, Andrey Tarkovsky, Eldar Ryazanov, Nikita Mikhalkov and many other directors. His photo of Jury Jakovlev was placed on the cover of the book “Icons 1960-1980”, and his chronicle of Russian cinema was awarded with “Golden Eye of Russia”
