One writer describes Borsov’s photography:
“Sergei Borisov's People and Time exhibit at the Manezh really blew me away. Usually I would feel manipulated by the juxtapositions of Stalinist architecture in decay and young dissidents, with the ever-present officialdom in the background. But Borisov does it perfectly. Plus, the collection of subjects--from a late 1980s Motley Crue concert to a nude Eduard Limonov to Victor Tsoi--and of places--from Brighton Beach to Moscow to Israel to Cairo--pull together so much of the past three decades of Russian life.”
With a modern perspective juxtaposed to his consideration of Russian history, he has a fresh and unique perspective with endearing, yet profound whim.
