While employed under contract to the U.S. EPA, I was presented with the opportunity to make two trips to the former Soviet Union. The mission was photographic support for a joint U.S./Soviet wetland documentation/classification project, with the final product an atlas of Soviet Wetlands. The first trip originated in Moscow, then on to Voronezh, Rostov-on-Don, Don River Cossack Village, Alagir, Ordzhonikidze and Caucasus Mountains, second trip started in St. Petersburg, then Petrozavodsk, Belomorsk and Solovetskiy Island. Travel was by plane, train, bus, boat and truck, we stayed in some hotels, but also lodges, homes and remote field stations. The people were warm and extremely friendly and I wish to thank them. These are just a few of my personal photographs.
