Vladimir Sichov

Born in 1945 - Russian Federation


Vladimir Sichov is a photojournalist; he has been photographing in black and white since 1965. He is interested in street photography, history, fashion, and artist portraits that he has been taking since the mid-60s.

Born in Kazan in 1945, Vladimir Sichov moved to Moscow in 1972 and got to know the alternative, "unofficial" artistic community of the Russian capital. He became friends with several artists, exhibited their wok in his apartment, and took their portraits. In 1980, Sichov immigrated to France with his photo archives of more than 150,000 black and white negatives. He was the first Soviet photographer to show images of daily life in the Soviet Union in the West. His photographs appeared widely in the media. Paris Match published a 44-page story in the issues of 7 and 14 March 1980. In October 1980, the book "The Russians seen by Vladimir Sichov" was published by Editions Paris Match, with a preface by Roger Theron. At the same time he joins the Sipa Press agency, whose Director was at the time Goksin Sipahioglu.

Shortly after, Vladimir Sichov met Helmut Newton and started to work for Vogue as a fashion photographer. Until 1989, he took photographs at fashion shows, shooting designers and other fashion celebrities. In 1980 Vogue Paris published a 40-page story entitled "Haute Couture seen by Vladimir Sichov".
