Misha Gordin, who grew up in Soviet-occupied Latvia in the 1950s and graduated as an aviation engineer but never worked as such, turned his efforts instead to a manner of self expression in line with some of his heroes: Dostoevsky, Bulgakov, Tarkovsky and Parajonov.  In a moment clear as day, at 26 years of age, he decided to photograph “concepts”, and to this day his work stands as some of the most poignant conceptual photography we have had the pleasure of seeing.  Gordin left Latvia for America in 1974.  This series “Crowd” requires no words, though it echoes the undoubted influence of the socialist realist stronghold on his upbringing, mixing brooding formal elements with a sense of pure poetry.
