      … “infamous” seems more appropriate for some of them. History could have done without Trotsky, Kolchak and Wrangel, all three of them sworn enemies of the Revolution, albeit from different sides. Kolchak actually looks like a nazi and of course, he acted like one. Images of Nicholas II always remind me of Dmitri Medvedev. Now, why is that? Hmm… Lenin addressing a crowd is one of the few images that deserve the much overused term “iconic”. But when you read RT or Sputnik today, they find almost everything “iconic”. Morons. Stalin had bad skin. But we knew that. Poor little Joseph had survived smallpox as a child. The guy enjoying a solitary Christmas dinner and Rasputin are plain weird and the “drinking team” actually seem to be having tea! I wouldn’t call that “drinking”. My favorites are Gorky & friends, the gramophone shop, the family of a photographer, the image where the samovar seems to be a member of the family, the mysterious and beautiful looking silent movie actress and of course, Leo Tolstoy. He’s pure magic! Shame, his wife gave him such a hard time.
