A Life's Work In 100 Moments

For the great Russian photographer Sergey Maximishin, choosing 100 of his best images for a book was too challenging a task to take on himself. In order to create an objective collection of his finest work, the 51-year-old enlisted the help of three trusted colleagues. The results are now on display in Prague’s Zahradnik Gallery. From a brooding Vladimir Putin to the flash of a ferryman’s gold teeth, Maximishin's photographs are at once journalism and art.
