Working predominantly in Russia the 20's, 30's, and 40's images of Max Pension are well constructed and transportative. The journalistic and propagandistic approach to the frames is clear and convincing- the workers are heroic. Faces beam with strength and pride, harvest celebrations are joyful, and industry is strong.

The rare vintage works on display elevate the lifestyle, the government and the image of Russia at the period they were taken. The effectiveness of the images resonates in their ability to charm and entice us even today.
