Boris Ignatovich, 1899-1976

Screenshot
This spectacular website, which garnered a Webby nomination for Best Art Website in 2016, is dedicated to the work of Russian Photographer Boris Ignatovich. Beginning in 1923, Ignatovich photographed the world around him until his death in 1976. His photography captured Russia during the earliest days of communism, World War II, and throughout the 1950s and 1960s. Created by the Innovator Foundation, a non-profit organization formed to preserve Ignatovich's work, this website invites visitors to learn more about Ignatovich's life and work through a collection of online exhibitions. These exhibitions display the skill and variety of Ignatovich's work, from portraiture to aerial photographs of the architecture and nature of the Caucasus region to haunting scenes from World War II. Visitors can explore the collection in two ways. Those who want to simply focus on Ignatovich's photographs can browse the Gallery; alternatively, the Museum, which is best viewed on desktop computers, offers an interactive timeline of Ignatovich's life and work set to music. While some items require a password to view, much of this remarkable collection is freely open to the public.
