Photo 51: Is Corruption in Russia’s DNA? is a photography exhibit by Soviet Union born Misha Friedman that explores the origin of cultural corruption in Russia, where it seems to be accepted as a naturally occurring phenomenon. Friedman’s photography explores how accepting the unacceptable acts as a means of survival, integrating itself into the social and political framework of the country. Photo 51 was a nickname for the first X-ray diffraction image, a breakthrough in the discovery of DNA. Friedman’s stark black and white photographs take a deep look into the inner structures that comprise Russia.
