Alexander Gronsky (born in Tallinn, Estonia, in 1980)

Alexander Gronsky is notable for his photographic practice of landscapes of contemporary Russia, and his works are shown internationally. After the career as a press photographer in Russia and the area of the former Soviet Union since 1999, he came to focus on documentary works from a point of his personal view since 2008. Referring to himself as a landscape photographer, he focuses on vast spaces and investigates how local populations are impacted by the surrounding environment.
He received the Aperture Portfolio Prize (2009), Foam Paul Huf Award (2010), World Press Photo (2012). His works were shown, including The Edge (Aperture Foundation, NY, 2010), Alexander Gronsky (FOAM Museum, Amsterdam, 2010), Pastoral (Photographer.ru Gallery, Moscow, 2011), Mountains & Waters (Polka Gallery, Paris, 2012).

アレキサンダー・グロンスキー(b.1980 年)は、現代ロシアのランドスケープに焦点を当てた作品で国際的な注目を集めている写真家です。1999 年からロシア・旧ソ連地域で報道カメラマンとして活動した後、2008 年よりパーソナルなドキュメンタリーを撮りはじめ、現在は⾵景写真家として広大な画⾯を捉えることで、周辺環境と地域住民の関係性を探求する作品を制作しています。これまでに、Aperture Portfolio Prize(2009 年年)、Foam Paul Huf Award(2010 年)、World Press Photo (2012 年)など、数々の賞を受賞。主な展覧会に「The Edge」(Aperture Foundation、ニューヨーク、2010 年)、「Alexander Gronsky」(FOAM Museum、アムステルダム、2010 年)、「Pastoral」(Photographer.ru Gallery、モスクワ、2011 年)、「Mountains & Waters」(Polka Gallery、パリ、2012 年)など。
