В Санкт-Петербурге живет поэт Михаил Сапего. Главной своей деятельностью Сапего считает культуртрегерскую: он находит на блошиных рынках, на чердаках заброшенных домов, в архивах библиотек уникальные свидетельства из прошлой жизни: песенники, дневники, альбомы, письма частных лиц (недавно его показали по новостному российскому каналу, где он читал письмо женщины-блокадницы). Михаил Сапего ведет свое расследование по каждому интересному для него и для истории страны случаю, а потом издает свои находки маленькими книжками в издательстве «Красный матрос», возглавляемом им. Чаще это исторические документы, связанные с историей дореволюционной и довоенной. RIA Novosti media library. Старый Бишкек - Пишпек - Фрунзе... - Old Bishkek. Русский Туркестан.

Россия в Средней Азии: Очерки путешествия по Закавказью, Туркмении, Бухаре, Самаркандской, Ташкентской и Ферганской областям, Каспийскому морю и Волге. — СПб., 1901. Мы должны были отплыть в Узун-Ада на почтовом пароходе общества «Кавказ и Меркурий» «Князь Барятинский». Пароход отходил в 7 часов вечера, и мы, с помощью носильщиков персов и извозчиков татар, перекочевали на пароход еще совсем засветло. Пристань общества «Кавказ и Меркурий» — самая обширная и во всех пристаней Баку; пароходы подходят к ней вплотную, так что избегается всегда неприятный переезд по морю на яликах.

Max Penson - Anahita Photo Archive

The artist Max Penson fled his hometown of Velizh in Belorussia during the pogroms of 1915, and settled in Kokand, where he taught drawing. By 1925 he had become a professional photographer working at the newspaper Pravda Vostoka. Penson was friendly with Rodchenko, Zelma and Sergei Eisenstein, and his work reflected the same modernist concerns. Eisenstein wrote in 1940: "There cannot be many masters left who choose a specific terrain for their work, dedicate themselves to it completely and make it an integrated part of their personal destiny… It is, for instance, virtually impossible to speak about the city of Fergana without mentioning the omnipresent Penson who traveled all over Uzbekistan with his camera. At the start of World War II, Penson's career was affected by growing anti-Jewish sentiments and he was given less important newspaper work.

The Russian Season

The language, like the images, was crude with rhyming slang and puns inter-mixed with a rich vocabularly of violence. Satire was used freely to portray the class enemies as grotesque and unsavory. Considering the enormous task at hand it is understandable that over time a number of conventions were established, for example, standard colour coding and distinct simple images so the illiterate masses could easily pick out the Red Soldier/Worker; the various enemies of the regime, such as the capitalist dressed in his black suite or the Foreign Generals, the Poles usually in Green and yellow and the French in Blue.
