Ukrainian documentary photographer Boris Mikhailov (born 1938) is internationally admired for his intense, clear-eyed depictions of his homeland, the Ukraine--most famously, his portrayals of the everyday struggles of the bomzhes, the homeless, a class that dramatically enlarged after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Using this raw and emotive material, Mikhailov touches on themes ranging from the living conditions in post-communist Eastern Europe and the fallen ideals of the Soviet Union to the harsher trials of human existence. Although deeply rooted in a specific historical context, his work also narrates more accessible, personal threads of humor, lust, vulnerability, aging and death. This publication presents, in facsimile, Mikhailov’s well-known artist’s books Krymskaja Fotomanija (Crimean Photomania) and Mountains, each of which is 128 pages and which are here supplemented by 80 pages of informative, illustrated text.

Book Description Walther König Feb 2013, 2013. Buch. Condition: Neu. Neuware - Das Besondere an Boris Mikhailov als Büchermacher ist, dass er die Fotografie in Sequenzen und Abfolgen, in Zwischenräumen und Schnitten, in den Formen der Montage denkt und entwickelt. In der Zusammenschau ergeben die häufig nur in einem Exemplar existierenden originalfotografischen Bücher und Buchentwürfe eine Retrospektive ganz eigener, intimer Art. Auf jeweils 128 Seiten werden die Künstlerbücher Krymskaja Fotomanija und Mountains facsimiliert gezeigt, unterbrochen von einer 80-seitigen illustrierten Textfolge. Boris Mikhailov gilt als Chronist der Geschichte seiner ukrainischen Heimat: Dem Alltag der so genannten kleinen Leute auf der Straße, am Strand, bei Tanzveranstaltungen - überall dort, wo Politisches im Privaten sichtbar wird. Mikhailov entwickelt aus diesem Material übergreifende Fragestellungen zur Bedingtheit menschlicher Existenz ebenso wie zu Geschichte und Untergang der UdSSR und den Folgen. The special thing about Boris Mikhailov as a book maker is that he thinks of and develops photography in sequences, in spaces and cuts, in the forms of its montage. Viewed as a whole the books and book drafts, which often only exist as one original copy, create a retrospective of a very unique and intimate kind. The artist s books Krymskaja Fotomanija ( Crimean Photomania ) and Mountains , each with 128 pages, are shown here in facsimile, interrupted by 80 pages of illustrated text. Boris Mikhailov is seen as a chronicler of the history of his Ukrainian homeland: the everyday life of the so-called little people on the street, on the beach, at dances anywhere that the politic becomes visible in the private. Using this material Mikhailov develops comprehensive questionings on the conditions of human existence as well as on the history and decline of the USSR and the consequences of this. 336 pp. Englisch, Deutsch.
