USSR photos by Jacques Dupaquier. Jacques Dupaquier is a French historian and academician. His work and methods contributed to the development of the historical Demographie. Jacques was traveling in the USSR thrice in 1956, 1964, 1975. In the list of places he visited were Moscow, Leningrad, Tula, Smolensk, Minsk, Uzbekistan, Caucasus, Cuban, Ukraine …Let’s get in our time machine and take a look at the travel from Moscow to Krasnodar of 1964. Although Dupaquier was not a pro­fes­sional pho­togra­pher the color images he took on his Leica dur­ing this jour­ney formed a vivid record of early Khrushchev and post-Stalin Era. Jacques-Dupaquie joined the Com­mu­nist Party in 1943 and was sec­re­tary of cell Pon­toise until 1956 when he was expelled. The rea­son is unclear but could be related to his visit to Soviet Rus­sia and Uzbek Repub­lic. Jack­ues was part of a French mis­sion to the USSR in Sep­tem­ber 1956. This mis­sion was orga­nized after the 20th Con­gress of the Com­mu­nist Party in which Nikita Khrushchev denounced the per­son­al­ity cult and Stal­in­ism (dic­ta­tor­ship of Joseph Stalin).
