One hundred years ago, in 1917, Russia was wracked by revolution, famine, foreign war, and domestic unrest. Indeed, the events that unfolded in Russia that year changed the course of twentieth century history.
And yet, throughout 1917, babies were born, lives were started. Meet four such “children of 1917” who are now inspiring 100-year-old women. They are part of a crowdfunded book+film project myself and Russian photojournalist Mikhail Mordasov are working on all this year, called The Children of 1917.
The project is underway, but it's not too late to jump on board so you can follow us along on our journeys, and meet amazing people like this with us.
To see more of these amazing women, and hear their voices, watch our short (90 second) video.
