Body

The article analyzes photo-documentary and poetic material devoted to the life of Bulgarians who worked on a joint Soviet-Bulgarian logging enterprise in the Udorsky District of the in the Komi Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic in 1960–1990. Videos based on photos from family archives and poems written as memoirs of life in the north of the USSR are considered as a naive form of documentary film and naive poetry. This makes them an important source for studying the everyday life of Bulgarian migrant workers
