Лихие 90-е в откровенных снимках. Фото These years were marked by rampant crime and the sexual revolution.

A veteran of the photojournalism of Yevgeny Kondakov, being at the end of the last century at the forefront of night and criminal life of the capital, has created this series of images “Revolution in nature”.

Most of the photographs taken by the author in “dashing 90-e”, which have become a living myth of our time. “New Russian”, “Russian mafia”, “chaos” – those largely mythical concepts from the 90s – today reflected in the literature and popular folklore, movies and TV series.

Another concept from the same time – a statement that in the 90s in Russia there was a “sexual revolution”.

Indeed, it was then Tverskaya street in Moscow in the evening, filled with hundreds of prostitutes. And the day turns young girls from all over the country, aspiring to become models, win the beauty contest or to be in a erotic show.

Sex was a taboo subject in the USSR – and then it suddenly became the brightest subject of mass culture. Symptoms of sexual freedom steel for post-Soviet society a symbol of radical reforms, “slope”, of modernity, of the progressive proximity to the West, a break with mossy unloved “scoop”.

Triumphant sexuality-the revolutionary bright and aggressive captured the public life, becoming one of the main markers of success in those years. But it was really revolutionary changes in personal and public the psyche of the Russians?

Since the early 90s, the photographer tries to understand whether it was actually in Russia the sexual revolution – and it is also one of the myths of the era of change?
