    Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency has opened a personal exhibition of Dmitry Donskoy, one of the legendary veteran photographers of the agency and the winner of numerous Russian and international professional competitions, at site of Russia's State Central Museum of Contemporary History.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Photos of the four main sections of the exhibition, namely Boris Yeltsin, Parallel Worlds, Environment and Sport, draw visual parallels between key events in the life of the country and the more intimate stories of its famous citizens — athletes, culture and art community representatives and politicians.

    The exhibition "I Was Shooting Parallel Worlds" includes 165 photographs covering almost fifty years of life of the Soviet Union and Russia from the late 1950s until the middle 2000s.

    The exhibition is open until September 18 for all museum visitors.

    "For professionals, the name of Dmitry Donskoy means more than a whole epoch in the history of photojournalism. Dmitry Donskoy, the master of camera journalism, set high professional standards as well as standards of press photography, which even today is hard to achieve for many photojournalists," Valery Melnikov, a press photographer for Rossiya Segodnya and the winner of the World Press Photo-2017, said.

    Over 45 years (1961 – 2006), Donskoy worked as a special photo correspondent for the "Novosti" Press Agency (APN) and RIA Novosti, the predecessors of Rossiya Segodnya. While working at the agency, Donskoy took unique pictures from ten Olympic Games, prepared political reports and portraits of Russian statesmen, actors and athletes.

    Rossiya Segodnya is an international media group whose mission is to cover world events in a prompt, balanced, and unbiased manner. Rossiya Segodnya offers alternative views on key events in Russia and elsewhere. The agency operates a number of information resources, including RIA Novosti, Sputnik, RIA Real Estate, Prime, R-Sport, RIA Rating and InoSMI. Rossiya Segodnya has the highest citation ranking among Russian media and is building up the citation rate of its foreign brands while leading in the Russian blogosphere and social media.

    Photojournalists of the agency are winners of many prestigious international and Russian competitions in the field of photography, including World Press Photo, Magnum, The Best of Photojournalism (BOP), Professional Photographer of the Year, China International Press Photo Contest (CHIPP), Picture of the Year International (POYi), Sony World Photography Award (Sony WPA), Days Japan International Photo Journalism Award, Bourse du Talent and others.
