Title: Window-Shopping through the Iron Curtain
Communist shop windows may long have passed from history into irony,

modern commercial culture have won them a new generation of fans.
Window-Shopping is a wonderfully deadpan celebration
of a unique commercial aesthetic that flourished under the crumbling
totalitarian Communist regimes of 20th-century Europe.
than 170 images, mainly shop window displays, shot by artist David
Hlynsky during the final years of the collapsing Soviet
empire, using a Hasselblad camera to capture the slow, undramatic
moments of daily life on the streets.
