Kiev-RW

Kiev-RW

In the mid 1980's I visited the Soviet Union. It was several years before the Berlin Wall was torn down but trade with the west was opening up especially for PC software which I was selling. I took this image in the Ukrainian city of Kiev. There was always a sense of "big brother" is watching and people kept to themselves eyes down when they walked. A man is suspiciously watching me through the open archway door as I pulled out my Leica and started taking pictures.
