History in Color:
Moscow, Russia, USSR, October 1983 – Gogi Gurgenyan of Fergana, Uzbekistan is working on making his photo reports from the 1983 World and European Championships at the Izmaylovo Weightlifting Hall in Moscow.
As some of you might know, Gogi Gurgenyan’s photography portfolio includes thousands of original work from many national and internationals tournaments made from 1967 to nowadays. The photos were taken at the World and European Championships, Friendship Cups and USSR Championships and Cups. Those are five decades of Olympic weightlifting through the eyes of a brilliant photographer. Many of his photos were presented in my History in Color series featuring color versions and compilations of black-and-white originals from the past.
