The selected works were almost anthropological in their nature highlights for me included works of Russian 'Hippies' on archaeological digs (photographer- Igor Palmin), also saw work from Japanese photographers Daido Moriyama  and Seiji Kurata (who follows in his footsteps in style but also draws on the operating manner of  U.S. news photographer Weegee).
