Iconic WW II Images by Dmitri Baltermants at Nailya Alexander Gallery

The gallery presents this exhibition in commemoration of the 65th Anniversary of the end of WW II in Europe this May. During the war, Dmitri Baltermants (1912- ‐1990), who taught himself photography, worked for Izvestia (the Communist Party newspaper) among other journals, covering battlefields in Ukraine, Poland and Germany, reaching Berlin in 1945. His photographs chronicle war as a universal tragedy. Grief (1942), one of his most iconic war images, documents the aftermath of a Nazi massacre in the Crimean village of Kerch, by showing grieving village women as they search for the bodies of their loved ones.


Nailya Alexander Gallery is pleased to present “Dmitri Baltermants: Photographs 1940s-1960s,” an exhibition encompassing the photographer’s iconic WW II images and his work from the last years of Stalin’s glory and the era of Khrushchev’s politics.
