Anarchy in the USSR

Between 1985 and 1991, when the Cold War was beginning to thaw, photographer Igor Mukhin documented Moscow’s nascent punk rock scene, loosely interpreted from the images and sounds that were trickling in from the West.



By the time the scene had dissipated, almost as quickly as it emerged, Mukhin had taken over a thousand rolls of film of the rebels and misfits that inhabited it so colorfully, which he’s compiled in a new book, I’ve Seen Rock ‘n’ Roll.
