This shoot was taken in a time (1990) when Russia had changed dramatically. In Grace Coddingtons book ‘A Memoir’ she reflects on this shoot….‘With the big thaw of glasnost and their newfound affluence, the Russians were more flashy, ‘designery’, and opulent. McDonalds had recently opened, and there were queues around the block’
