Detailed exposition of Soviet photo cameras and equipment in deep of North-East Siberia.
In village Berdigestyah (Sakha Repiblic, Russian Federation) there’s own small museum of photo cameras and photo equipment supported by local news paper “Ule kuuhe”(“The Power of Labour” in Russian). This unique (by local criterion) museum was founded by initiative of editor-in-chief Alexeev Vasily Il’ich on a base of collection of professional photographer and member of Russia Journalist Union Kubarov Georgy Terent’evich (sorry for so long family and “otchestvo”(father’s name) mentioning but it’s a special Sakha feature which symbolize your respect to the concrete person and his/her working and personal achievements). 3 years ago he made a present for editorial staff of 24 photo cameras. Since that time they hard go in for collecting of cameras for future museum.
Nowadays there’s a collection of more than 100 photo cameras of former Soviet Union including 62 no repeatable cameras of different brands. There are lots of Smena’s, FED’s, Zorki’s, Kiev’s (for 35mm. and medium format film), Zenit’s and not so common cameras in exposition. Strange thing but I didn’t see our beloved little beauty the LC-A?! Deserving place is for photo enlargers, flashes, light meters (“Sverdlovsk” and “Leningrad” especially) photo glazers and other soviet photo equipment. I also checked very interesting item – set of old photo film of 1950-s-1960-s. And don’t miss (if you succeed to visit this so very far place) the photographs and portraits on the stands. The collections of different pens from visitors and journalist and old printing machinery (in the courtyard) are also very interesting.

Even today, the West is still hung up and mystified with Russia's Soviet past. The Eurasian country is also one of the most talked about in terms of international politics, and more often than not being misrepresented by Western media. This was Russian daily life.
Pripyat is a modern day Atlantis. The inhabitants of the Soviet town had to run from the nuclear disaster and therefore it has been preserved more or less in the state of 1986. I made my way up to the North of Ukraine thirty years after the catastrophe. This is the second part of this adventure.
