Ukraine has a knack for producing exceptional beautiful women, and brilliant men who stay on task. Anyone who grew up in the 40s, 50s, 60s and early 70s, who regularly read their parents or grandparents copies of Life, or checked them out in the barbershop, or in waiting rooms - were treated to Dmitri Kessel's wonderful work. Dmitri Kessel produced some awesome and inspiring work. He was a photojournalist and staff photographer on Life magazine known for his courageous coverage of war on the front line, including reports on the liberation of Europe and conflict in the Congo. Dmitri Kessel was born as Dmitri Kesselman in Kiev to the family of sugar beet farmers and landowners.

An extraordinary man- As a boy he learned to use a box camera to snap photos of friends, family and his everyday life. Involved with Ukrainian People's Party, he documented a massacre by Ukrainian villagers of pillaging Polish invaders but had his camera destroyed by the leader of the Ukrainian mob. From the age of ten Kessel trained at the Poltava Military Academy in Russia to serve as cavalry officer, and later joined the Red Army campaign against the Poles during the Polish–Soviet War (1919–21).

On quitting the army, Kessel studied leather tanning and industrial chemistry in Moscow 1921–22. Whilst bidding his family farewell as they moved to Russia from Ukraine, he was arrested by Polish guards but escaped to Romania where he was again detained but released.

Kessel emigrated to the US via Romania in 1923 (naturalized 1929) to New York City and worked at part-time jobs in the fur industry and for Russian-language newspapers. He attended night classes at City College, then in 1934 attended Ben Magid Rabinovitch's (1884–1964) School of Photography (founded in 1920). His training in photography coincided with rapid changes within the medium itself. Exploiting his industrial experience and contacts, he specialized in photography for factory owners. This led to his being signed on as a freelance for Henry Luce's Fortune in 1935, which secured his success as a photojournalist, with assignments to cover World War 2 from 1939. He became a staffer and war correspondent for Life in 1944, and he remained with the magazine until 1972.

I drooled over his black and white work as a kid. Thankfully he was blessed and lived another 23 years till the mid 90s.

I do have to say, having been to Ukraine on two missions as part of a California EMS/Disaster contingent that there were indeed a lot of really pretty women…..enough that we all remarked on that……some of us with a bit more class than others….but everybody noticed.

In memory of the goat fucker Gene Wilder - of course I'll comment - The defendant did commit an adulterous act with a sheep - most distasteful in view of the fact that the sheep was under 18 years old. Such a off the wall & funny movie. Never hear anyone mention it anymore. Which begs the question; What would one like to know about sex - but were afraid to ask? What do girls really want? Does the deep spot feel more pleasureable then the G-spot, or more pleasurable then the G-spot and staying on the clit, combined. What should I do when women ask certain things like? Wanna get it on? - other then, hell yes! or I thought you'd never ask. Someone needs to write an entire book called "How To Sex 101", that should be a prerequisite for and/or after senior health's sex ed.

Saw it at the Adak movie theater in 1973 - after I read it was banned in Ireland the late winter/early spring of 1973 - I knew, I just had to see it. A wee bit dated today, but still a classic none-the-less.
