Born in 1961 in Moscow. In 1988. began to cooperate with the agency RARNO (Paris). Actively works with many publishers, performing documentary photography related to the history of Russian Contemporary Art. In the late 80-ies created a series of photographs - 'Monuments', a concept which provides a parallel with the work of Friedlander. The process of photographing is supplied by the artist in this series as a means of monitoring the works of art, their hidden life. Mukhin use different perspectives, seeking the set of visual effects: the overhangs of the monument above the town, "revival" of individual parts and t. d.
The next series, conceived by the artist as an alternative to 'big' style - 'benches'. However, despite the seclusion, the genre of the topic itself, an artistic decision here preserves the scale, energetic perspective, big plans, so that the benches were brought by the same 'monuments'. It is noteworthy that, if the sculpture theme 'secondary' photos (picture is after the completed monument) is obvious, program applied for, then the series 'benches' this line being much thinner. Sense that the photograph - a minimalist sculpture, but not destroyed by the bench, very sharp, but it is difficult to formulate, as it is impossible to indicate the analogue.
Participating in exhibitions since 1986 and abroad since 1988.

Igor Mukhin. From the catalog "Kunst im Verborgenen. Nonkonformiste Russland 1957-1995 ". Prestel, Munich-New York, 1995

. Documentary photography potential to be particularly severe criticism when a photographer, for example Constructivists, uses documentary itself as an artistic device that makes Igor Mukhin in its series of 'Monuments'
. This collection of monumental sculptures of the Soviet period (and is not very well known), filmed in the style of photos 20x's, but in a strange term, and unexpected angles, using the 'look Rodchenko' as the workpiece (Readymade). Only Mukhin replaces the living model Rodchenko - Athletes, . Pioneers, . Writers - gypsum players and Yuri Gagarin in metal: so it exposes the ideological nature of the work of Rodchenko and shows, . that the poetics of constructivism is not essentially different from the rhetoric of Stalinist art,

Igor Mukhin also explores the theme of the photographic image, because it works with the signs and symbols of Soviet power. As soon as the Soviet cultural symbols become blurred and disappear in the Mukhina, they also lose their ideological meaning: having lost its function of retaining the ballast system, they lose the old aura of monumentality. Destabilization of these symbols is obtained owing to the perspective that Mukhin elect in relation to its subject matter: Prospects unstable and directly opposite the monumental compositions Technology. Mukhina interested in the role that photography plays in the process, titled Jan Assmann 'cultural formation' characters.
. Symbols of state power (such as monuments and memorials) are reduced in the process of historical change of power structures at other levels of cultural consciousness of society
. Having lost their utilitarian and didactic, they become open radical rethinking. They mutate from a positive role model in an anti-model in the light of changed circumstances.
Photography is able to provide the same character, and as a carrier of power, and as the exponent of this power loss. We Mukhina its subject becomes commonplace, reduced from 'high' to 'low', high to low relevance.
