A lost "Golden age": 44 documentary photos by Vladimir SokolaevPictolic
If Vladimir Sokolaev once took up a camera and realized that photography is his life's work, we would have lost a very unique and valuable source of information about Soviet reality since the "Brezhnev stagnation", which we still called almost the "Golden age" of Soviet civilization.
Sokolaev often tried to catch in the attempts to distribute this gold any dirt. But smart people have always understood that his work — the story is about something else entirely. For example, about the attempt to talk about the Genesis not the categories of posters and slogans, and living and understandable to each language. So it really is much easier to understand.
