Nevsky Prospekt, Leningrad, USSR, 1975 | Masha Ivashintsova

Masha was always curious about the souls of her fellow Russians: combination of omnipresent callousness with inner love and warmth. The shop sign in the photograph says «friendship» which rhymes with genuine smiles, music, and happiness, but starkly contrasts the meager reality of communist demonstration.
