«Local History Meetings» Project: Mikhail Shmerling

On the 21st of December the library held a meeting with journalist and photo artists Mikhail Shmerling which was part of the library's project «Local History Meetings». Writers, artists, local historians, journalists and museum workers came to the library to congratulate Mikhail Shmerling on his 70th anniversary that he had celebrated on the 7th of December.

For that meeting Mikhail Shmerling prepared a digital presentation of his photos and spoke about the story of some of them during their demonstration. He also told the audience about how he had been working on photos of Stephania Stanyuta, Rygor Baradulin, Alexander Solovyov and numerous artists from Vitebsk. There was also the presentation of photos taken in Braslav region where, as the artist admitted, he loved taking photos.

In 1969-1983 Mikhail Shmerling worked in Vitebsk Regional Museum of Local History. The museum's Assistant Director for Science Valery Shishanov congratulated him on the anniversary. The guest's colleagues from the «Narodnae Slova» newspaper Arkadiy Podlipsky and Svetlana Dedinkina took the floor to wish him best and recall all those warm moments they had had with him. Poet Vladimir Popkovich read a piece of poetry dedicated to Mikhail Shmerling.

High-profile artistic works by Mikhail Shmerling have been awarded at photo exhibitions here, in Belarus, and abroad. Through his photos we can learn and follow the history and the present of the ancient Vitebsk.
