  • Awesome photos, love the man sleeping on the dog!

  • Levi

    really interesting

  • Niko

    I’m for the third one, takes me to some scene in a novel/

  • These are all really wonderful. Pages in a story each. But also the subjects aren’t unaware that they’re being photographed. Nicely warm. Thanks for sharing!

  • Yvy

    I’m in love with the second picture

  • lapetitefaon

    wow, the kid with the mask, amazing

  • Sometimes I get the idea that Russia is this really fucked up place put together only so that photographers have all these wonderful images to capture.

  • zuzapalooza

    life is so amazing !

  • The lack of infrastructure and technology in these images is amazing; people interacting within their environments and with each other. Also, there is a sense of lethargy .. maybe because of a lack of employment .. but you get the feeling that time passes slowly for the people in these photographs.

    This is photojournalism at its most beautiful and best.

Are the Similarities Between Trump and Hitler TIME Covers Purely Coincidental?

trump-hitler-time-cover0

TIME Magazine has just announced their “Person of the Year” is Donald Trump. Twitter users were quick to point out the striking similarities between this cover, shot by photographer Nadav Kander, and the Adolf Hitler cover from April 1941. Hitler was also named “Person of the Year” in 1938.

In both images the subjects are seated in chairs, but as Fader points out, notice the ominous shadow on the wall, and the way the colour of the backdrop complements the suit. For reference you can look through the past “Person of the Year” covers here.

Many are also suggesting that the “M” in TIME gives Donald Trump the appearance of having devil horns. Are people reading too much into this or were these intentional decisions? Have a look at both cover images below.
