Contest held by the Elite Modeling Agency in Moscow to select two women from the former Soviet Union to compete in Paris for their Face of the Year. A 15 year old Ukrainian (in the white dress) was the winner, and went on to win the international competition in Paris as well. She is now working with Elite in New York.
Women selling vodka to travelers at Yaroslavsky train station, Moscow. By selling in the station they can mark up the price slightly since it is the last chance for people to buy vodka before boarding trains. Many older Russians are engaged in this type of small scale trading since high inflation has made it impossible to survive on their pensions alone. Photograph by Robert Wallis
