Homo Sovieticus: Carl De Keyzer’s photo project about the USSR

Homo Sovieticus: Carl De Keyzer’s photo project about the USSR

Among a number of projects of Carl De Keyzer, the ones about the USSR have always been holding a special place. And one of them is a series of pictures which the Belgian photographer has made during his yearlong trip around the Soviet Union in 1988 and 1989. Later, Carl combined the pictures into a photo book that had been named Homo Sovieticus.

The book contains hundreds of historical photographs from all around the USSR. These 80 shots are the most interesting ones (in our opinion) that we picked up to share with you in this post.
