Vladimir Vorobjev: Another Soviet Photo Realist

Posted on April 15, 2014 by tim

Vladimir Vorobjev is another Soviet photographer which didn’t become famous during his lifetime. His granddaughter spent her time together with another man going through his archives and after that the photos were published in a Russian magazine. He was especially active in the 1980s, so these photos here mainly reflect USSR at that time. As the magazine quotes the photographer: “The most value for a photographer is to make social photography. Every day things, routines, life – what can be more important than that? And the best criteria to distinguish good social photography is its truthfulness.” So here we have the photos.

    reality was that soviet people, good people, had it very very bad. probably did not know just how bad. are you slipping back to the old ways?

      This is what you get with a totalitarian socialist regime. They’re lied to from birth, they don’t know how bad it is. “Bread lines? You should be happy, those poor American’s do have ANY bread!” That’s why they’re so closed off like north korea.

      North korea, thinks the bags of grain we send them, we are forced to send as reparations for the war. They think America “lost” the war, and is in such sad shape there’s millions starving every day.

      They’re so brainwashed, that they think kim ill sung (the original leader), flies, can be in more than two places at once, and doesn’t go to the bathroom.

      That’s what happens when you’re brainwashed from birth and are totally closed off.

        Yes it’s not so bad, it was just pictures are selected to show life with one hand. If the photos were exclusively of people with smiles and shows developed cities it would seem that in the USSR everything was fine. However in the middle, these people did not live as bad as they say in the West. Poorer, but not bad. As someone who was born in the USSR, I can say it.

    Everything was big in Soviet Union. See that guy’s pocket watch in the last photo.
