Moscow photographers Yuri Rybchinsky and Eduard Gladkov, who created the “Museum of Photographic Collections” in 1993, were among the first activists preserved and popularized the national photographic heritage. In the midst of Perestroika, they managed to collect the works of the most outstanding representatives of Russian photography – Sergei Borisov, Igor Mukhin, Alexei Shulgin, Lyalya Kuznetsova, Sergei Chilikov, Vladislav Efimov and others. In 1997 the collection was complemented by masters of the 1920s – Alexander Rodchenko, Boris Ignatovich, Arkady Shaikhet, Georgy Petrusov. The crucial part of the collection is the work of “dissident” photographers of the sixties – Sergei Gitman, Alexander Lapin, Boris Mikhailov, Boris Saveliev, Vladimir Semin, Alexander Slyusarev. This collection represents and analyzes life and history from variety of angles: political, social, poetic, psychological… Programme pictures of the Russian avant-garde and pictorialism classics of the 1920s-1930s, photographic socialist realism of the 1950s, full of hopes and romanticism photographs of the “Khrushchev thaw”, the event shooting of the 1970s and 1980s, and postmodern photoexperiments form a “brief but quite comprehensive outline of Russian photographic history of the twentieth century,” – Olga Sviblova writes about Rybchinsky-Gladkov’s collection.
