As well as black-and-white photography there are rare examples of authorial colour printing dating from 1960 to 1980, with its’ characteristic colour spectrum. Most of the images were printed by the photographer himself, or produced under his direct supervision.

This stamp was created by his heirs to confirm photographic authorship during initial sorting of the photographer’s archive after his death in 1990, and subsequently destroyed – “From the legacy of Dm. Baltermants” stamp, as proof that the image belongs to the archive of original photographs – The afore-mentioned features in various combinations – Absence of any stamps or signatures.
