In 1982, the famous British photographer Yen Berry visited the Ukrainian SSR as a photo reporter. During this trip, he made a series of shots about how Soviet people live in Odessa. Awesome atmosphere and bright shots act like a time machine.

Ian Berry has established himself as a photo reporter while working in South Africa for the Daily Mail newspaper and Drum magazine. He was the only one who captured the mass shooting at Sharpeville in 1960, and his photographs were used in court proceedings to prove the innocence of the victims.

In 1962, Henri Cartier-Bresson invited Berry to work for the Magnum agency. In 1964, Berry returned to London and became the first contract photographer for Observer magazine. Since then, he has traveled all over the world, removing the Soviet invasion of Czechoslovakia, conflicts in Israel, Ireland, Vietnam and the Congo, famine in Ethiopia, apartheid in South Africa. The photographer has worked with publications such as National Geographic, Fortune, Stern, Geo, Esquire, Paris-Match and LIFE.
