My father( Lefter Vasilii 22.02.1943) was an artist, designer and photographer, and we were born the same day. He left a lot of interesting things, in addition to photographs, paintings, drawings: a homemade box of Cyrillic Russian letters, a book- a photocopy of Soviet publications on medicinal plants, stencils, sketches for the Soviet-era propaganda posters, and more.
Regarding his approach to photography, it is interesting to know that this job served as archive for fixing and Soviet reality, as it was as well a method of earning extra money. Since the income of our family was not adequate to bypass the authorities, he began traveling to Moldovan villages and shoot peasants. In the Soviet times, as I recall, there were no possibilities of receiving extra work to do, so we had to be content with the salary gained through the official job. Subsequently, many photos weren’t sold because he didn’t have the time to do this.
