Biography Shokin Leonid
Leonid Shokin, 1896-1962, was born and lived all his life in g.Kimry, Vyatka province. Only a few times he went beyond the top - the Volga region: military service in 1914-1915, and for trips to Moscow and Leningrad. In 15 years he became interested in photography, at 17 - became a member of the RFO and, together with his younger brother, organized Cymric Branch of the Russian Photographic Society. In 1922, four members of their department, together with his brothers Shokin were observed at the All photographic exhibition in Moscow. In mid-1920's, when Moscow and Leningrad, almost a wave of hunger, attacked from the south, Kimry came the most influential members of the RFO 'live': Eremin, Klepikov, Ulitin, Yarovof.

Leonid, who had begun as a brilliant photographer, in the late 1920's had to go to a photo correspondent of local rural newspaper that has retained its ancestral home and studio. In 1930 he took off his countryman Kalinina Cymric Stakhanovites and students, farmers. After complicated methods of art print (bromoylya, gum arabic), in 1930, taking orders from the newspapers, it only works in bromserebryanozhelativoy Print. And gradually, hundreds of negatives, lyrical landscapes, taken at the end of films with custom newspaper stories specifically for art prints, remain unclaimed. Sometimes he made reference prints or small photos 'for themselves'. One of the first unclaimed plots - view of the cathedral g.Kimry.

The archive Shokina survived an entire collection of stories related to this 19 th century white churches: the cathedral at different weather conditions, the removal of the domes in the 1920's, the removal of the iconostasis and storing grain in. 'Kimry before the storm' - the romantic landscape, with a heavy stormy sky, the white church and the black water of the pond. He recalls the classic landscapes of Russian painters Vasilyeva, Savrasov. Although the technique of direct bromserebryanoy print, it conveys timeless significance and reporting are the lack of fuss and spoil the many landscape photographers the Soviet era.
