The first personal exhibition of a photographer, Timur Khadeev, which takes place at the «Moskovsky» Cultural Center from November 9 to December 9, was nominated for the «Event of the Year in the Field of Contemporary Art».

The «Lost Connections» exhibition is a kind of synopsis of a photographer Timur Khadeev’s work. It includes key works in two main genres  of the author - portrait and landscape, and the main objects of his photography are the city and people in it.  The author concentrates on social and physical changes of Kazan: he recalls his childhood, when walking with his father (photographer Nail Khadeev), he felt that old Kazan was already leaving. However, analyzing his photographic experience since 2009, when he began to shoot after his father, Timur Khadeev comes to the conclusion that he is not interested in disappearing in itself, but in the beautiful passing of time. His work is not about the old city as such, but about what has already been lost.
