Amazing Russia of the 1990s in 23 pictures

2 Mins read

We publish some interesting pictures of Russia from time to time, and this publication covers the 1990s. As usual, Oldpics selected some noteworthy photos of Russia made by a foreigner, French photographer Jean-Paul Guillotho. It’s important to observe the Russian lifestyle through the non-local lens, as it catches some unique details that only non-soviet people notice.

Jean-Paul Guillotho traveled to Russia several times, from 1991 to 1996. Russia definitely said bye-bye to the Soviet Union in the 1990s, but some of these pictures stilled the transition moment.

Check out our photo selection of Moscow photography of the 1950s and some pictures from the late 1980s. Both photos sets are made by foreigners too.
