The Moscow-based photography collective Troyka opened their first solo exhibition in the small hall of the Artplay Design Center on Saturday. The exhibition brings together 30 photographs and 3 videos culled from different series that they have worked on over the past few years.

The collective, which describes its work as ethnographical research, comprises the photographers Olga Rodina, Anastasia Soboleva and Lena Tsibizova. Here, they share some of their photographs with The Moscow Times.

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
