Soviet Photo Magazine Online

Toronto. Russ Forfar, one of our speakers this year, a long time member of the PHSC and a frequent table holder at our fairs, sent me an interesting email late last month on a Russian Photography magazine.

The Open Culture website has an article on this magazine. has a link to a free download of  437 Issues of the Soviet Photo Magazine covering its first issue in 1926 through 1991. (I had trouble getting the Open Culture link to work for me.) This magazine was the Soviet Union’s Historic Photography Journal.

The issues all have many photographs (even in colour in later issues) but the articles and other text is in Russian so you need to know the language and the Cyrillic alphabet.
