1 December 2012. Our Great Russian Motherland. Broad is My Motherland… Russia as Seen by Vadim Gippenreiter

One of the albums issued by the great Soviet photographer Vadim Gippenreiter simply had the title, Broad is My Motherland. A better description of Russia hasn’t been penned (do ignore Churchill’s ignorant and drunken bon mot, “A riddle wrapped up in an enigma”… that’s condescending and utterly false at base).
