USSR in Construction Celebrates Birobidzhan

Host to many of the finest avant-garde photographers in the Soviet Union, the photojournal USSR in Construction (SSSR na stroike) chronicled the success of the early Five-Year Plan for readers at home and abroad. Much like Life Magazine in the United States, its large format pictures on high-quality (relative to the Soviet norm) paper represented the front line in photojournalism. New construction sites from the Ukraine to Siberia graces the pages of the journal; and here we provide selected photos from a spread on the new Jewish Autonomous Region of Birobidzhan.
