Elena Chernyshova is the Russian photographer, based in France, awarded at the World Press Photo 2014 and published in the world for her project ‘Jours de Nuit, Nuits de Jour’. The photos show moments of daily life inside Norilsk, important mining and metallurgic center in Russia, the world’s northernmost city with more than 100,000 inhabitants.
Some almost surreal landscapes, people, streets and buildings surrounded by an unfriendly atmosphere, are the preferred subjects by the photographer who wishes and succeeds in investigating the ability of man to adapt himself to extreme climatic conditions, isolation and pollution.
Two rooms of the gallery are set up to show the two parts of the exhibit: the Days of Night, the Nights of Day.
