Dmitri Baltermants was a prominent Soviet photojournalist serving as an official Kremlin photographer.  He worked for the daily Izvestia and served as picture editor of Ogonyok, a popular Soviet magazine.
Baltermants covered the battle of Stalingrad, during World War II, and the battles on of the Red Army in Ukraine, Poland and in Germany, ultimately reaching Berlin in 1945 where he was wounded.   One of the more famous images, called "Grief", depicts a 1942 Nazi massacre in the Crimean village of Kerch. It shows the grief of village women as they search for the bodies of their loved ones. A powerful oversaturated sky above, burnt in during the printing of the photo, makes the image even more dramatic. This Image was used on the cover of the Dir En Grey album, The Marrow of a Bone.
