My first Super 8 movie camera bought for me in 1979 was made in the Soviet Union.
I had used to obtain colorful literature from the Soviet exhibitions, Aeroflot, Intourist/Sputnik bureaus and the USSR Consulate in my young hood, as well as from various sources about Socialist Eastern Bloc.
So, I am hungry for all kinds of materials from the USSR and Eastern Bloc in Russian, German and others.

Also, I am keen on Japan. I don't know why for sure. Probably, because of wide variety of high quality and expensive products that I can not afford to buy in my young hood.
I am hungry for all kinds of materials from Japan especially in Japanese, too.

I have a large document collection in my field from all over the world.

Now, I may say that I have everything, but I miss the past time with limitations.

I have been in more than 50 countries.

I am also a fond of wildlife cinematography.
