Rafal Milach - Black sea of concrete

 

The fertile Ukraine – Hitler dreamt of it but it fell prey to Stalin. It was him and the likes who planted this land. They did what they could. They are long gone but the fertile land of Ukraine continues to yield its crop – subsequent lumps of concrete. Its surface is covered with cracks and rust-colored patches but it is still firmly set in the ground.

Irony as a landscape is a joint exhibition of young Russian photographers Oleg Borodin (27), Anton Zabrodin (31) and Alexander Lyubin (33). The artists perceive photography more than an object and go beyond the surface of prints with help of irony and symbolism.

In her work “The City of Brides” Alena Zhandarova explores a well known legend in Russia: “The City of Brides”.
