The Primordial Russia Festival is a bright mosaic of the most interesting events that gives visitors an inexhaustible source of learning: hundreds of popular science lectures, meetings with travelers and researchers, screenings of the latest nature documentaries, master classes and excursions for children await them and adults.

Hundreds of photos will tell visitors vivid and dramatic stories that wildlife and birds live daily, and detailed descriptions will help them learn more about Russia’s nature.

The result was more than six thousand unique photos sent to the festival, which will make the 2022 exhibition particularly bright and memorable.

● One of the focal points will be the exhibition photographic work “Four Seasons”, prepared by the festival organizers together with the Association of Wildlife Photographers. It took two years to create, it will present about 50 latest photos: Kaliningrad and Kuriles, Altai and Kalmykia, Caucasus, Arctic regions and many other regions of Russia. Viewers will see all the diversity of the annual life cycle of Russia’s pristine nature. The first avalanches and black bass, summer storms and ibex, the golden autumn with herds of cranes preparing to fly away, the frost-covered trees in the cold of winter and the December battles of the shiga deer.

Φύση Can the nature of the capital be discovered by a city dweller? The authors of the special project “Wild Nature of Moscow Parks” are preparing many photo surprises for the guests of the exhibition, which will surprise even the sophisticated lovers of walks in the city.

Συχνά Nature often presents a person with visual illusions. Real objects are shaped for us into deceptive images, giving rise to stunning images. We can see the figures of people, animals or fairytale creatures in the form of a relief of the earth or a reservoir, among a scattered stones or in a dense forest. An undefined visual image for an observant viewer suddenly begins to be perceived as something special and definite. One of the most unusual exhibitions of the upcoming festival will be based on photos created with the creative technique of paradox.

. Traditionally, in 2022, an exhibition of foreign photographers will be presented at the festival – this year, our colleagues from Mongolia will become guests of Primitive Russia. This state is next to Russia: we are united by a common history, culture and, of course, nature. Together with Mongolian scientists, Russian researchers are conducting projects to preserve rare species of animals. Mongolian photographers will show visitors to the festival the unique landscapes of Mongolia and photos of animals living in the open spaces of this beautiful country.

. Visitors to this year’s festival will find even more interesting photos from up-and-coming young photographers. In a special exhibition, you can see the best works of the winners of the traditional photography competition “Focus” of the All-Russian Public and State Organization of Children and Youth “Russian Movement of Schoolchildren”, organized in collaboration with the All-Russian Nature Festival “Original Russia “.

The festival will feature themed days by its partners: Roszapovedtsentr of the Ministry of Natural Resources of Russia, the Federal Tourism Service of the Russian Federation, the Russian Association of Wildlife Photographers, the TV channel Living Planet, the Union of Ivan the Baptist of the Far East and others.
