In the USSR there was a powerful tradition of photography, which brought up a lot of masters. In this collection - very different pictures: staged and documentary, metropolitan and provincial, funny and sad. But every image is a moment of life. Alas, nowadays there are more and more photographers, but fewer such powerful and lively photos...
