Irony as Landscape, was showed at Moscow’s Lumiere Brothers Center for Photography, is a joint project by three young photographers – Alexander Lyubin, Oleg Borodin and Anton Zabrodin – who explore symbolism and irony and how they relate to the Russian urban landscape. Oleg Borodin, born in Moscow, says his dream was to find a way to create the ‘vision of meadows’ spreading out through the high-rise buildings. The three photographers have explained why irony is central of their exploration of Russia’s towns and cities: ‘We do use humour and playfulness in our work, but it’s not fundamental. Irony is something less fun and more intellectual – we are not looking to make people laugh, we are trying to attract people’s attention to common things with the help of irony’
