Paramilitary camp for boys in Russia

  1. An interesting series of photos taken in a paramilitary training camp for boys; these are usually run by Russian nationalist/patriotic groups with the help of the Russian Orthodox Church and the government: http://www.themoscowtimes.com/photogallery/html/3277/
     
  2. Thanks for posting.
     
  3. Interesting photography, disgusting otherwise.
     
  4. My thought is that given the horrors of WWII in Russia, the memories run deep. Perhaps the spirit behind the camp is that their youth can be, in a small way, prepared to defend the Motherland. Just opinion.
     
  5. Thanks for the interesting link. I think the photos are good but not outstanding. I like them getting in wide and close, but I think after 15 images the low angle gets a bit much, I don't see why the distortion of image 15, for example, adds to the image.
    But I think overall it's a decent job of illustrating different aspects of an interesting subject.
     
  6. Perhaps just their version of the Boy Scouts. What's disgusting?
