"Passport" 
Alexander Chekmenev

First European show of
an intimate vision of Ukraine

 

In 1994, social services in Lugansk, a city in south-western Ukraine, recruited photographers to take free I.D. photos of the elderly, sick or infirm citizens who couldn’t afford to pay for them. The Ukrainian photographer Alexander Chekmenev was one of those who accepted the mission of going door to door during this passport-nationalization campaign. He accompanied social-service staffers whose job was to provide those needy people with free medicine and groceries. It created an impressive body of work about rural Ukraine and its hardships, one that is reminiscent of Mikhailov’s documentation of people living on the fringes of society.

"Tools of resistance" 

Sasha Kurmaz

"This series consists of items that activists used in the confrontation with the police on Maidan in Kiev 2013-14, after the first casualties on the square, when the police had started to use weapons. My goal was to create not just a picture, but an anthropological document that would provide me with more information for analyzing past events."

"Tools of resistance" 

Sasha Kurmaz

"Cette série rassemble des objets utilisés par les activistes lors des confrontations avec la police sur la place Maïdan (place de l’Indépendance) à Kiev en 2013, après les premières victimes, lorsque les forces de l’ordre ont commencé à utiliser des armes.

Mon propos, au-delà de créer des images, est de produire des documents anthropologiques qui permettent d’analyser les événements passés."
