Photo report from the USSR half a century ago. Soviet life in the lens of John Schulz
At the end of the 50s, foreign photographer John Schulz, as part of his European trip, arrived in the Soviet Union. In those years, foreign tourists in our country could be rarely met, and professional photographers from behind the hill were completely rare. That is why the pictures taken by Schultz using high-quality photographic equipment are of particular interest today. And every year historical the value of the frames depicting the everyday life of the USSR of the 1958 model will only grow - after all, memories tend to fade, family photo archives turn yellow, age and become worthless, and these high-quality images still look as if they were shown in a red room just yesterday! But quality is a secondary matter, and the plot always comes to the forefront in this kind of photographs - and here Schultz cannot be blamed for triviality or lack of professionalism in any way. His lens manages to capture a tennis duel between the girls and a rich (apparently manufacturing) feast in the metropolitan restaurant, beach vacationers in inconspicuous swimsuits and an air parade in Tushino, the entourage of the Moscow museum and store shelves with prehistoric TVs sold at very “bite” prices, tram walks in Moscow streets and much more. The selection turned out to be bright, symbolic, and in all respects talented - as you can see firsthand in the blog "Generation Diary"!
