Soviet Photo Magazine, December 1964
[sf_12_1964]

Sovetskoe Foto (Soviet Photo) was the only photo magazine available to photo professionals and amateurs in the Soviet Union. Like any other publication, it was state-run and heavily political, yet another outlet for Communist propaganda.

And as in any other publication, the pictures and articles in Sovetskoe Foto were censored and had only one purpose - to show the greatness of the Soviet Union, the Soviet government, and the Soviet working people. State censorship had one benefit - since it was done mostly by professionals, low quality pictures and articles never made it to print.

These old magazines have great historical value - one can see life in the Soviet Union at the time it was heavily guarded under the Iron Curtain. The Soviet Photo issues are the jewels of my collection; I value them more than many of my rare cameras. Only a few duplicate issues are offered for sale.

The December 1964 issue is 22.5x29 cm (9x11.5") and contains 48 pages, it is in good condition.

A few feature articles:

  • Official Propaganda (photos of Soviet industrial objects)
  • Interpress-Photo Exhibiting (Poland) Report
  • New cameras (FT-2, some cine cameras)
  • Photo essay about Africa
  • ...many more articles and photos
