The photographs of the artist Oksana Kyzymchuk seem immediate, unadorned, and direct. The photo book documents the dense social fabric of a culture shaped by agriculture in provincial Ukrainian. The focus is above all on images of childhood, in which the universal magic and beauty of being a child emerges. Contemplating and simultaneously remembering, the reader is touched twice at the same time.
The photo book is published in two different editions. A strictly limited one with just 100 copies which includes a DVD with a complementary documentation about the Ukrainian village, produced by the artist. (sold out)
„The formal brilliance of the photos, the wealth of extremely fine modulations in tonal values, and the lighting moods are very striking. A “monument to childhood” in a rapidly changing world — what a beautiful, strong self-will detached from the relevance criteria of the spirit of the times. The enclosed DVD explores the sound space connected with the world of images that Oksana Guizot presents.“ (Ulrich Namislow, bestselling author and professor of book design)
