Military photojournalists often were with their cameras at places where they almost had no chances to survive. Thanks to their enormous work we have an oppurtunity to touch the history today and to see the war with our own eyes. Mikhail Savin was one of such photojournalists. His shots are real classics today. Mikhail was born in far 1915, started to take photos in 1941. He managed to catch interesting moments of Soviet
troops retreat, the defense of Moscow, the Kursk battle, attack of Soviet troops in Europe etc. He had a talisman and believed it always helped him to survive on the most difficult and hopeless days. It was a porcelain ring for curtains hanging. All his work is one of the best samples of how a real professional treats what he does. It gave us a chance to see the war the way it really was.
