An informative historical overview of Russian photography based largely on the holdings of museums in Moscow and St. Petersburg, this catalogue features fine reproductions of more than 150 diverse works by some 80 photographers, ranging from early daguerreotype portraits, documentary images of war and impressionistic landscapes to photomontages and idealized portrayals of Soviet life produced during the Stalin era. Seven substantial essays tracing the development of Russian photography from its beginnings to the eve of World War II include discussions of such topics as the early use of the medium for ethnographic studies, the rise of pictorialist styles, and the experimental works produced by the post-Revolutionary avant garde.
