Being an amateur photographer in Saint Petersburg means being constantly busy. The city invites me to explore it with the camera, but it also offers places where I can exchange points of view and learn from photo artists. Between its specialized galleries, one of my favorite is Art of Foto.
It is a little gallery located at the end of Bolshaya Konnyushnaya street, just meters away from the Moika canal and the Spilled Blood Church. In it, the organizers, who have been working there a couple of years, try to form not only an exhibition place, but also a club, a place where amateurs and professionals can come to experience photography through conferences, meetings and exhibitions. The printing services and bookstore complete the picture.
Since I first heard about the place, I happen to visit quite often and I like getting some info on new artists and their ways.
