From Publishers Weekly:

These revelatory black-and-white photographs, testimonies produced within the past decade by 18 resident Soviet artists, represent a dramatic departure from the propaganda images familiar to Westerners, in which "everyone is happy and laughing and with great optimism participates in the work of construction." Disclosed is a world not often seen by outsiders: Soviet citizens share a meal in a cemetery; country women walk barefoot to spare their shoes; Lithuanian markets teem with pigs, poultry and cattle; a woman stands apart as nomad men feast in a tent; a circus acrobat gracefully twists into a bizarre shape. But many readers will be discouraged by the lack of captions, a somewhat obscure narrative and an unwieldy, disorganized format that requires excesssive leafing among the pages to match photographs and text. The husband-wife authors, photohistorians, live in Czechoslovakia.

From Library Journal:

This book, drawn from the authors' collection, illustrates the work of 18 Soviet photographers, including the famous (Garanin, Spuris) and some only recently discovered, with Baltic photographers predominating. Ian Jeffrey provides a discussion of comparative styles. Biographical and stylistic summaries for each photographer are gathered at the end of the book, along with a list of their plate numbers and titlesan inconvenient arrangement, as the photographer is named only on the first page of a series of numbered plates that carry no titles or dates. Reproductions are excellent and provide memorable glimpses into the lives of farmers, market-goers, children, nomads, and the religious community; landscapes are included only incidentally. Recommended. Kathleen Collins, Library of Congress
