During 20 years photographer Lucien Perkins covered events in Russia and other former Soviet countries. He came to Moscow for the first time in 1988 for the historic meeting of Ronald Reagan and Mikhail Gorbachev. In 1993 he again went to Russia for
six months and he felt that it was absolutely different country. Photos of Perkins not only reflect the major political events of the time, but also capture the spirit of freedom that prevailed in hearts of Russian people in the 90s.
