The widest range of historical and cinema images for editorial and creative use
John Massey Stewart Russian Collection
Another personal archive represented at Mary Evans Picture Library is the collection of John Massey Stewart, an author, skilled photographer and environmental activist who has travelled widely in Russia, the former Soviet countries and the Far East over many years. The majority of the images date from Tsarist, pre-revolutionary Russia, and many are in colour, while a substantial minority depict events and personalities from the Soviet era. Original source material encompassing Topography, Social Scenes, Rural and City lifestyles and Architecture have all been translated, and catalogued in great detail.
