Mikhailov, Boris – Choisi
He glued his pictures of everyday life in Kharkov, Ukraine, on the back pages of an unfinished dissertation. On the margins of the pages he jotted down fragmentary thoughts, diaristic observations, quotes from books he read.
They are sometimes wry, sometimes melancholy musings on Soviet society, art, and photography. Mikhailov discovers beauty amidst the dreariness and absurdity of the everyday in a provincial town in a crumbling empire. His notes are a stimulating counterpoint to the photographs: As monotonous and banal life might ever be, the human mind and its resilient will to play always offer a last refuge for the individual.

These were the last years of the Soviet Union: society was still under pressure, which was mixed with a sense of absurdity and uselessness, and hence also with the feeling of some kind of freedom. A sequence of very personal, intimate images merges with gloomy landscapes and pictures of public spaces, building a commentary on the broader social context - an all-encompassing melancholy.
Then the next wave of photobooks in Ukraine appeared around and - during the Revolution of Dignity and the subsequent war. These were mostly first publications of different authors from the Kharkiv School of Photography of the Soviet era.
