On January 29, Nina Alovert’s exhibit, titled “The Gorgeous Features of My Dear Friends,” opened at the Far Eastern Museum of Arts in Khabarovsk. Nina Alovert, an internationally celebrated photographer and ballet critic, who was born in the Soviet Union and immigrated to the United States in 1977, had earlier opened her exhibit in Vladivostok, with the support of the U.S. Consulate General Vladivostok, to much acclaim. Throughout her nearly four decades in the United States, Nina Alovert has actively collaborated with the Russian periodical press in New York and Russia, photographing many famous Soviet and Russian émigré ballet dancers, writers, and film stars. PAO Erik Pugner introduced Ms. Alovert’s work at the opening ceremony in Khabarovsk and was joined by the Deputy Minister of Culture of the Khabarovskiy Krai. Local and national press covered the event, and the enthusiastic attendees ranged from young ballet students imitating the poses of their heroes in the photographs to accomplished photographers celebrating one of their own legends.
