In Between Times: Lyrical And Nostalgic Atmosphere Of The Soviet Ural Region In Beautiful Black And White Photographs Of Ivan Galert

People in a hurry, waiting for a tram at a bus stop or resting on the bank of a river, picturesque provincial sketches, new buildings and parades are the main subjects in the photographs of Ivan Galert taken at the end of the Soviet era in Sverdlovsk and nearby.

Ivan Galert was born near Chelyabinsk in 1954. After his military service in 1975-1980 he studied at the Ural State University of Economics, specializing in “Technology and organization of public catering”. After graduation, he worked as a photographer at Ural State University. From 1980 to 1990 he took pictures in Sverdlovsk (Ekaterinburg) and its environs in the best traditions of humanistic photography.

The shots depict the everyday life of ordinary people, no sensations and no celebrities, except for Mikhail Gorbachev’s visit to Sverdlovsk in July 1990. Already in August of the same year, Ivan Galert moved to Düsseldorf, Germany, to film for the newspaper Bild. It was not difficult to move, the photographer’s father was German. He published a nostalgic album of black and white photographs “Ural 1980-1990” on Facebook.
