30,000 Photos That Reveal How Life In The Soviet Union Was Like Were Discovered In A Russian Attic
These 30,000 photos that reveal how life in the Soviet Union was like were recently discovered in a Russian attic. Masha Ivashintsova was always taking photos of her day to day life in Russia.
From 1960 until 1999 she constantly photographed her surroundings, but no one ever got to look over her photos. Not even members of her family got to see Masha’s work, until 2000, when the Russian photographer died.
Masha’s daughter started going through her mother’s stuff after her death and she came across 30,000 never before seen photos. All these snaps are like a walk back in time to Leningrad’s underground art scene during the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s.

Masha always felt that her photos were not good enough to be publicly exposed so she kept her work private. After her death, her daughter opened an Instagram account which you can follow right here, where she regularly publishes new photos.
