Four contemporary photographers reflect on the legacy of the Russian Revolution: David Monteleone retraces Lenin’s return from exile a century ago; Rafal Milach explores ideas of protest and passive acceptance through a town archive; Andrejs Strokins discovers a cache of revealing images from the Soviet era; and Boris Mikhailov continues to reflect on life before and after the fall of communism. Plus, we examine the role of photography as propaganda during the heyday of the Sputnik space programme.
