Arkady Samoylovich Shaikhet (Russian: Аркадий Самойлович Шайхет, September 12, 1898 - November 18, 1959) was a prominent Soviet photojournalist and photographer. His first photographs were published in 1923. In 1924 he joined the staff of the national magazine Ogonyok and his images were used for the covers from the very beginning. In the history of Soviet photography, Shaikhet's name is associated primarely with the appearance of a type of journalistic photograph called 'artistic reportage.' Shaikhet was one of the founders (together with journalist Mikhail Koltsov) of Soviet Photo in 1926 and from 1930 he contributed to USSR in Construction. His well-known photographs of the industrialization period in the 1920s-1930s became a 'carte de visite' for new Soviet Russia. During the Second World War he created a series of images of the Battle of Stalingrad and later of liberation of Kiev, Ukraine.
The Sovfoto agency, which from 1932 distributed Soviet photography in the West, holds examples of his photojournalism.
