The archive of Valery Faminsky (1914-1993) recently found in Moscow is a
unique discovery. Taken in Berlin between April 22nd to May 24th 1945, the photographs show the

viewer to witness these historic moments intimately.

A narrative full of complexities and ambiguities, like a series of modern day tableaux." – George Georgiou
