Vintage Photography in P'titCREF

With all this history activities we had for the past weeks we still long for the touch of something aged and vintage! Old photographs always give that sense of history and all the great memories that come along with it. So we are now glad to announce our new history project for the upcoming theme of Modern Times!
Ivan Pustovalov, Moscow photgrapher will come to visit us and will bring his Wista, a replic of very famous Linhof Technika camera. Ivan worked for Afisha, Art Review, Bolshoy gorod, Eda, Harper's Bazaar, Tatler, Le Monde 2, Mir, Vogue Russia. After a long career in fashion photograpgy his professional and artistic interests are now lay in the field of family photography and will open very soon a special studio for family portrait. You can also contact Ivan through his web site to order a photo session for your family.
Please dress up your children in period costume for an antique photo: straw hats, sailor's striped shirts, lacy dresses. To wear just a one-color outfit is also an option. Patterns don't turn out nice in this type of photographs. We will supply accessories to make this trip back in time memorable: funny moustaches and red lips, bowler hats and umbrellas.
Ivan will be taking group photos using sheets of silver-plated copper to create a positive image. This method was used in 1920s. So the originals will be unique and we will be then exhibiting them in the school hall for parents to see.
Parents can purchase their digital copy for 1500 roubles . Please order in advance.
Photo sessions will take place on the 17th and on the 19th of February in the main building. The date for toddlers will be announced later.
