Boris Smelov (1951–1998) was a legend of the St. Petersburg school of photography, famed among practitioners, collectors and critics until his early death in 1998. This publication illustrates Smelov's images of St. Petersburg, which are not only remarkable photographs but also constitute the most expressive portrait of the city made in the twentieth century.
