FRAGMENTS | Dmitri Baltermants
Dmitri Baltermants was a Jewish Russian photographer who worked for the Kremlin as a war photographer. Baltermants documented the Battle of Stalingrad and the Red Army battles in Russia and Ukraine. Like all of his colleagues who documented the Red Army, many of his photographs were censored by the Soviet authorities, with the aim of presenting the battles in a positive light and increasing morale. Many of his more powerful photographs were only allowed to be published in the 1960s.
