How it was: nostalgic Soviet photographs by Vladimir Rolov (part 2)
Medal of Honor

You can relate differently to the years 1970-1980. Someone thinks this time is a dark time of stagnation, but for someone it is a time of confidence in the future and a time of hope. But both those and others are unlikely to be left indifferent by the photographs of Vladimir Rolov - they are very soulful. These pictures are not about labor exploits and demonstrations, not propaganda and not reports from party congresses. Each of these photographs touches some hidden strings of the soul, because they capture random moments from the life of ordinary people.
