“In the late 1950s I met and befriended a group of young artists and poets. I devoted all my time to photography then, and became a chronicler of these nonconformists. They were small in number but extremely active in the artistic sense. It was in this environment that Joseph Brodsky and Sergei Dovlatov developed as artists.”

—Natsha Sharymova
