Being a photojournalist is a tough gig, especially when you're working with less than reliable gear. Roman Yarovitcyn spent the 1990's working as a newspaper photographer in Russia and shooting primarily on cheap and quirky Zenit-E cameras. Despite the shortcomings of his gear, the B&W images he created during this era are nothing short of mesmerizing.

These images are made even cooler by the fact that Roman is still a working photojournalist in Russia. Click the link below for his insights, and to read more about his experiences and view a much larger selection of his images. Oh, and if you liked what you see/read, grab a copy of his photobook, Edge of Centuries.
