Back to the USSR

From the Archive | USSR

Lenin Presides over Red Square, 1988
I went to the Soviet Union in 1988 to cover the arts underground and emerging capitalism. My goal was to bring back a new view of the vast and complex society, different from the stereotypical fare of monuments and tanks.  However, I did not pass on this classic scene.  Shot on Fuijichrome with a Nikon FM2.

Holiday Boxed Prints are available.  Special pricing:  Five 8x10 prints from Create Look Enjoy for $97.00

From 1986 - 1992, JB Pictures secured assignments for me from magazines in the U.S. and abroad.  I also produced photo stories on topics ranging from political and economic change in the South Korea to the arts underground and new capitalists in the USSR to pollution in the United States.
