Brushko, Sergej


Sergei Brushko was a Belorussian photographer (1958-2000). He was particularly known for his documentary photography work in the 1990s. He also worked as a reporter for “Chyrvonaya Zmiena” and “Narodnaya Gazieta” daily newspapers.

Working on themes such as rural life, women prisons, street children or the Chernobyl nuclear disaster and its aftermath on the inhabitants, (his long-term project and magnum opus) Brushko depicted life in the Cartier-Bresson’s style of street photography.

His work is exhibited in Belarus, Germany and Switzerland.
