Soviet Photography

Moscow: Sovetskoe foto, 1926-1934

Soviet Photography was a monthly published as a forum for photojournalism. The first issue was published in April 1926 with Maikhail Koltsov as editior.  In 1929 and 1930, the magazine was published twice a month. In 1931 it was acquired by the Ogonek publishing company and renamed Proletarskoe foto (Proletarian photography) in 1932 and 1933. It appeared only once in two months from 1934 onwards. The publication of the magazine was suspended between 1942 and 1956 because of the War and the resultant postwar economic situation. In 1957 publication was restarted until 1991. The magazine in its early days was famous for its participating artists/photographers as El Lissitzky, Aleksandr Rodchenko, Vitalii Saikhet and many others.
