Unique photos of Vladimir VysotskyBy Pictolic https://pictolic.com/en/article/unique-photos-of-vladimir-vysotsky
Here is a unique selection of photos of Vladimir Vysotsky. Unfortunately, not so many color and high-quality photos of Vysotsky have been preserved. However, this corresponds to the spirit of the times, so it's even more interesting to watch in black and white.
All photos of Vysotsky are taken from open sources, but the value of this collection lies in the fact that its authors have tried to collect the rarest and most unique photos of the beloved Russian bard.
Of course, by carefully viewing these pictures, you will be able to immerse yourself in the atmosphere of the past century and remember (or imagine) how we lived in the 60s and 70s of the Soviet era.
Photos of Vysotsky as a child
Vysotsky is six months old, 1938.
As a child, Vladimir Semenovich was an unremarkable boy who loved to play and have fun with friends. Looking at these post-war photos, it's hard to believe that a poet has grown up from a simple Soviet boy, who is now known all over the world.

It is worth saying that Brodsky called Vysotsky "... the best poet of Russia, both inside and outside," and after his death said that "... the loss of Vysotsky is a loss for the Russian language completely irreplaceable." This statement is simply impossible to dispute.
