Historical Cruelty Corner



Worth a visit if you're in the vicinity of the Embankment is this exhibition of the photographs of Max Penson, documents and aestheticisations of the Soviet Modernisation programme of Uzbekistan in the 20s and 30s: watch strong and dynamic young workers hurling javelins and building dams in the glamorous surrounds of Somerset House. Helpfully, we are told 'The exhibition and catalogue were made possible with the support of Roman Abramovich'. What a gent he is.



The photographs themselves are of course mostly terrific: sharply angled, poignant, stark and optimistic; but theres's something about their setting, up some stairs from a collection of baroque furniture in the bowels of Somerset House that feels really rather peculiar...
