That which never changes

(2006-2008)


That which never changes is a photography series realized predominantly in Paris between 2006 and 2008. The main source of inspiration for Valery Poshtarov has been the classical French humanist photography genre from the mid-twentieth century. Although accomplished some 40 years after the disappearance of this genre, the project spreads the word about its timeless values. 3000 km on foot, in search of the Man – from the random passer-by and the street performer to the prominent intellectuals’ portraits – each has a leading role in this exceptional street spectacle.
