Under the influence of modern technologies, photography seems like an ancient skill. Nowadays, people rarely decide to capture photography, unless it is taken with a smartphone (unless they’re a pro photographer).

Here visitors have a unique opportunity to see photos that are taken in the 30s and 40s, which have a significant cultural value. We have a list of exhibits you should attend this fall.
