Knights of the Vine RUSSIA


Yury Yevgrafovich Bykovsky
, who took many of the photographs in this months Olympic special, was born in 1928 and has been taking photographs since the age of seven. He was Soviet national champion in acrobatics in 1949 and 1951, and got his start in professional photography shooting circus performers. Bykovsky first photographed Olympic athletes at the Moscow Games in 1980. Since then he has photographed every Olympics, often for the quarterly magazine Olympic Panorama. Look for him alongside the track and beside the pool in Athens.


Mickey Berdy
, who writes a feature for PASSPORT on Moscow museums each month, has been visiting museums here since her first trip to the Soviet Union in 1975. She has lived in Moscow for many of the last 30 years, working variously as a documentary filmmaker, NGO director, translator, and interpreter for everyone from Boris Yeltsin to Nancy Reagan. These days when shes not busy touring museums for PASSPORT, Mickey writes the "The Words Worth" column on the Russian language that appears Fridays in The Moscow Times and is a consultant on public health and civil society projects.








Dan McLaughlin, who profiled four-time Olympic gold medallist Alexander Popov and synchronized swimming duet Anastasia Yermakova and Anastasia Davydova in this issue, writes: "I divide my time between freelance journalism and unemployment. Mercifully, the distance between the two is slight, and The Irish Times and the UKs Daily Telegraph are kind enough to pay occasional travel expenses." Frankly, we at PASSPORT wouldnt mind if the other guys left him a little more free time to write for us.
