Russian photographer Miron Ambramovich Sherling has been connected to the style known as “pictorial photography” which is linked to a group of artist photographers who were active in Russian from 1900 until 1930. Using traditional views of the figure and landscape the photographers sought the emotional side and experimented with soft lenses and sophisticated printing techniques. Critics of the times said “the artists sought to make photography painting.” In images shown at a recent exhibit from the M. Golosovsky Collection entitled, Russian Pictorialism (see the book "Quiet Resistance: Russian Pictorial Photography, 1900–1930s")– Chapter I, images are often blurred and have granular texture. Sherling did a series of the opera basso, Fedor Chaliapin, in stage costume with heightened emotional drama. Chaliapin besides being the top bass singer of his day was of equal renown to the great Enrico Caruso. Chaliapin’s great acting abilities and willingness to display character in front of the camera added dramatic impact to Sherling’s portraits.
