The Winter in Moscow in 1959

Carl Mydans (1907 – 2004) was an American photojournalist. He worked briefly for the Farm Security Administration during the 1930s documenting rural American life. In 1936 he joined the newly formed LIFE magazine where he became well known for his photographic coverage of World War II. In 1959, he traveled to Russia and documented everyday life of people in Moscow in the winter. He continued as a war photographer through the early 1970s.
