About This Work

The Russian photographer Mark Markov-Grinberg began his career as a photo-correspondent for various Soviet newspapers and magazines. By 1930, he had joined the Tass press pool, traveling throughout Russia to document aviation accomplishments, industrial construction, collective farms and famous personalities. His photographs chronicle life in Russia from the 1920s through the 1940s, similar to the documentary work of the American photographers associated with the Farm Security Administration and the Works Progress Administration in the 1930s. Markov-Grinberg used cropping and unusual viewpoints to create memorable images, such as In the Trenches, Near Kursk. Kursk was the site of the largest tank battle of World War II and was a turning point in the war between Russia and Germany.
