(b Belskoye, Vyatka province, 1870; d Leningrad [now St Petersburg], 1942).

Russian photographer. The son of a deacon, he learnt the techniques of photography as a boy. During the 1890s he worked chiefly in landscape, receiving a prize for his efforts at the 1899 St Petersburg Concours. Shortly thereafter his interests turned to Pictorial photography, using gum bichromate, platinum and other refined printing techniques that were gaining popularity at the time (see Photography, §I). He was a founder-member of the Vyatka (later Kirov) Museum of History and Arts and an adjunct member of the Dresden Photographic Society and of the Société Française de Photographie. Lobovikov was also the recipient of several awards for his photography at the international exhibitions in Paris (1905), Dresden, (1909), Budapest (1911) and Kiev (1911). In the late 1930s he was a scientific photographer for the Soviet Academy of Sciences (Leningrad).
