К сожалению, английским языком я владею с большой натяжкой, поэтому, комментарии к фотографиям переводить не стала, т.к. есть исторические кадры и чтоб не допустить ошибку, и не ввести вас в заблуждение :)

Newlyweds Having Their Picture Taken | photographer Shepard Sherbell | September 1992 | Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Sakhalin Island, Russia | Original caption: September 1992. A wedding party in Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Sakhalin Island, Russian Pacific. Everybody's already drunk, including the driver. It is the custom for newlyweds, after a cheerful but subdued ceremony in the Wedding Palace (an otherwise normal government office, but cleaner and freshly painted), to find the highest point in town, survey the panorama, and toast the bride. From here, they drive to the local Great Patriotic War monument, where the bride respectfully lays her bouquet at the Eternal Flame. Then everyone goes to the wedding dinner, at a restaurant if they can afford it, a friend's apartment if they can't. While the whole sequence is fading in Moscow and other big cities, it continues everywhere else, the only variation being that in some cultures they always have the dinner at home. At the restaurant, there is noisy downing of vodka.

Workers Dismantling Blast Furnace | photographer Shepard Sherbell | August 1993 | Magnitogorsk, Russia | Original caption: August 1993. In 1930, a young Margaret Bourke-White, on leave from Fortune magazine, photographed construction of the Komsomolskaya (Young Communist) Blast Furnace in Magnitogorsk. The symbolic heart of the steel mill, the furnace was built with the aid of an international brigade of idealists, including Americans. When the mill was completed in 1934, most of the brigadists went home. Some, including a few Americans, fell in love and married local Soviet girls. As their wives were refused permission to emigrate, most elected to stay and put down roots in the Urals. By 1936, Soviet life was crippled by paranoia, show trails, exile, and death by disappearance. The war followed; then suspicion and paranoia disfigured American public life as well. It was not until the 1980s that these idealistic, elderly men and women were granted exit visas to come to the USA.
