Dalbey Photographic Collection at the University of Denver
The Dalbey Photographic Collection contains photographic materials primarily created by Semyon Fridlyand (1905-1964) who was a Soviet news photographer from the 1930s until the early 1960s. His photographs in black-and-white, and also color were produced for major Soviet publications and agencies including: USSR in Construction, Ogonyok, and Pravda. These photographs documented the breadth and diversity of the Soviet empire. Post-war color photographs of industry, young families, leisure pursuits, sight-seeing, and tourism illustrated the Soviet Union as a prosperous and contented society. The collection contains over 24,000 photographic negatives, vintage prints, letters, Russian language journals, annotated envelopes that contained negatives, and envelopes with copy prints adhered to them. The negatives are black and white as well as in color. Several hundred items were created by other known Soviet photojournalists such as Georgiĭ Zelʹma, Max Alpert, El Lissitzky, and Arkadiĭ Samoĭlovich Shaĭkhet.
