Sergey Melnitchenko Photographs Of Ukrainian Life

Sergey Melnitchenko Photographs Of Ukrainian Life | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Sergey Melnitchenko is a young Ukrainian photographer whose pictures belie his age. As does the time he’s spent taking photographs. Four years ago he was given a camera and began taking street photographs. Over time, as his knowledge and experience grew, he began taking portraits and is now busy doing photo series which reflect something of the culture in which he lives; the people, places and activities.

The nuclear cupboard is bare: Photographs of abandoned Crimean bunker which once stored atomic weapons reveal why Putin can act with such impunity

The nuclear cupboard is bare: Photographs of abandoned Crimean bunker which once stored atomic weapons reveal why Putin can act with such impunity | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Following the Chernobyl disaster of 1986, it is not news that Ukraine once was a nuclear nation, but few know that in 1991 when the Soviet Union crumbled, Ukraine had the third largest nuclear warhead arsenal in the world after the U.S. and Russia.

A majority were stored in Crimea, where Russian troops are now stationed, and one of the vital sites was Krasnokamenka, in the Kiziltashsky valley.

It was once home to underground workshops where nuclear weapons were assembled deep in the mountains before they were transported to other parts of the Soviet Union.

The assembly centre was built in the late 1950s, but when the USSR fell apart, Ukraine became nuclear free and all the warheads were moved to Russia in the early 90s.

Boris Mikhailov: Four Decades in Red, Blue, Sepia, and Green

Boris Mikhailov: Four Decades in Red, Blue, Sepia, and Green | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

Boris Mikhailov’s haunting, candid images of Ukrainian streets are currently on view at Dominique Levy Gallery in New York. The pictures are overlaid with tones of red, sepia, blue and green, each color depicting a different era of life in the former Soviet Union over his over 30-year long career. The prints range from snapshot-sized to life-sized, reflective of both an individual and collective experience. Mikhailov, born in the Ukraine in 1938, has become a renowned documentarian of social, economic and ideological institutional changes in his country.

Lia Dostlieva Sacrifice

Lia Dostlieva Sacrifice | What's new in Visual Communication? | Scoop.it

I am a designer, photographer, textile artist, restless soul, mother. A member of Ukrainian Photographic Alternative (UPHA). I am interested in documentary and art photography, especially as they cross over into other art forms. In my works I like mixing techniques and knocking ideas together, finding beauty in ugliness, relevance in old-fashioned stuff, uselessness in cloying reality, strangeness in everyday objects. I like seeing things that nobody notices. Since 2008 I have been making imaginary creatures, dolls with a personal story.
