In April of this year an exhibition of 76 of Kar's large format prints travelled to Moscow's House of Friendship as part of a government-sponsored cultural exchange programme. Ida Kar received glowing reviews; 'Ida Kar is that rare thing - the artist photographer'. 20,000 people saw the exhibition in two weeks and in the UK Studio magazine ran the cover story 'Ida Kar: Artist with a Camera.'
