Soviet photographer Vladimir Zotov, born in 1939, was spending most of his life photographing Soviet people. Worked as a photographer in Soviet newspapers. He remembers that newspapers in USSR were paying very little to their photographers, he lived mostly from side projects like photographing weddings, kids etc. However he kept working because he liked photography. Here are a few of his works:

Village “Shadki”. 1967.
