“I want to look at photos, study all the details. Each image is interesting in its own way. Some of them were taken with a film camera, which gives special charm to them,” Alexander Khimchenko shares his impressions.

"We have been following the Russian Geographic Society Photo Contest for a long time, and last year we visited the Festival and exhibition at the Central House of Artists. I can still remember some of the photos, but I still feel happy to look at these beautiful photos once again," Oksana Bulakh and her son Peter noted.

"I’ve liked pictures from the category "Peoples of Russia”. It's interesting to learn how people live in different parts of this country. I was deeply impressed by the photo "Best friends" by Dmitry Arkhipov," Vladimir Sabitov said.

"Once in Moscow, I was able to see not only the capital of Russia, but other cities of your huge country as well. And these photos inspire new trips," Lucas Romero, a traveler from Argentine said. 

Exhibitions on Moscow streets and boulevards are open through March 31, 2018.
