The Lost Golden Age: Soviet Russia, As Seen By Photographer Vladimir Sokolaev

What’s the opposite of nostalgia? Remorse, maybe? Well, that is what Vladimir Solovev had captured; not so bright side of the Soviet era. Well-known documentary photographer in the 80-ties, Solovev was part of the famous creative group “Triva”.

Rumor has it, that it was dismissed for political reasons. Today Vladimir lives in Moscow and has a workshop in Novokuznetsk. Most of his time he spends outdoors, doing landscape photography. As of his earlier work, 30 years later his photographs have gained considerable historical value.

When asked if he wants to go back in time to live in the Soviet Russia again, Vladimir replied “Who wants to step on the same rake twice?”
