A collection of Soviet Union propaganda photographs, edited by Mark Holborn and Torsten Nystroem, with a Foreword by Hanz Blix.The former Soviet Union was held together by a rigorous policy of state propaganda which idealised Soviet accomplishments in an heroic manner.
This extraordinary collection of photographs comes from a great Soviet archive now in Sweden. For the first time the true quality of the photo evidence of these years is apparent. The sense of scale in almost every area of activity is daunting, the imagery awesome.
