These images were made with the support of the Russian government and Russian Air Force. I spent about three weeks at the air force base Kubinka and had unprecedented access. The result was three books and several magazine articles. Unlike on an American installation, I was permitted to wander around unescorted and to photograph cockpits, people, and "warshot" weapons systems without restriction.
