BORIS REGISTER
Eclipse Time

Curator: Nina Levitina
With the support of: NORNICKEL

As part of the XI Moscow International Biennnale ‘Fashion and Style in Photography 2019’, the Multimedia Art Museum, Moscow presents ‘Eclipse Time’, an exhibition by Boris Register.

The ‘Eclipse Time’ project won the prestigious Alfred Fried Photography Award in 2016. Boris Register’s work is held by private collections across Europe and the USA, and his images have featured in leading foreign and Russian publications.

In the ‘Eclipse Time’ project Boris Register raises important questions that the whole world faces today: migration and the clash of migrants with different cultural codes and a different way of life. The codes of another culture lie not only in linguistic constructions and rituals of behaviour, but also in the architecture and design we encounter on a daily basis.

The photographer examines these complex challenges of modern civilisation by looking at the Kaliningrad Region, which in the postwar period has experienced complicated transformational processes related, among other things, to the influx of a large number of immigrants, many of whom, like the photographer himself, relocated to the Kaliningrad area from various republics of the former Soviet Union. By observing the everyday life of adults and children from a very close and intimate viewpoint, Boris Register is a documentary photographer who also analyses incidences of social and cultural assimilation that have occurred in the Kaliningrad Region. His project, shot at a specific time and in a specific place, carries far more universal significance that is relevant today for all the countries that must cope with vast flows of migrants and the problems of integrating them into the local culture.

Boris Register was born in Tashkent. While still at school he joined a film and photo club. From 1980 to 1990 he worked as a newspaper photographer for the Tashkent Aviation Plant TAPOiCH and the Algoritm Production Association. In 1987 he began studying at the Pedagogical Institute in Tashkent while still continuing his work as a photographer. Register moved to the Kaliningrad Region in 1991. He collaborates with various media outlets in Russia and Central Asia as a full-time or freelance photographer.
