To Yuri Mechitov, Paradjanov was not only one of the worldâ€™s greatest filmmakers but also a close friend, an inspiring teacher and, quite simply, an extraordinary man.
This exhibition is composed of rarely seen photographs taken by Mechitov during their 11-year friendship, as well as some of the most famous pictures staged by Paradjanov himself.
The moments captured by Mechitovâ€™s camera reveal a kaleidoscope of amusing situations, contrasting moods, remarkable filmmaking occasions and expressive backdrops.
Yuri Mechitov has exhibited all over the world and has recently published Sergei Paradjanov: Chronicle of the Dialogue.
This is the first showing of his work in the UK.
