Light Work is pleased to announce the exhibition Pastoral, featuring landscape photographs by photographer Alexander Gronsky. The photographs were taken along the outlying areas of Moscow where the human need to find solace away from the city collides with urban sprawl, and the fragility of nature.

His considerable exhibition record includes solo exhibitions at Gallery.Photographer.ru in Moscow, Russia; Foam Museum in Amsterdam in the Netherlands; Aperture Gallery in New York, NY; the Kempinski Lufthansa Center in Beijing, China; Fotomuseo in Bogotá, Columbia; Foto Art Festival in Bielsko-Biala, Poland; and Ville de Levallois in the City of Levallois, France.
