Synopsis

Boris Mikhailov, whose "Unfinished Dissertation" was published in 1998, focuses in "Les Miserables" on what he believes is the result of the breakup of the former Soviet Union. Though Mikhailov considers the conditions of his particular place of residence for over 50 years crucial to his work, he is not providing a recollection of the specific history of Kharkov, Ukraine. Rather, he brings out the "condition humaine" in this city characterized by industry and factories, by newly installed Coca Cola billboards as well as socialist architecture. Kharkov provides the backdrop for Mikhailov's moving portraits describing the decay of both social structures and individual lives. We witness street kids taking drugs, adults in search of food, trying to re-install their social self by cleaning their bodies in the artist's own apartment. Despite devastating poverty, the women and men in Mikhailov's images look back at us with great dignity. Their eyes express an unbroken will to survive in a social system that has broken down completely. Mikhailov depicts the harshness of everyday life in a society not as far away from ours as we might think.

Not for everyone! 23. Mai 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The photos in this book are provocative and thoughtful - but definitely not for everyone. Case History is 400+ pages of Ukraine's poor and homeless - most in various stages of undress. Mikhailov comes through and does an excellent job of depicting certain aspects of the downfall of the Soviet Union - his photos are thoughtful and emotional - but often disturbing. View his other works before spending the money. Not for the weak of stomach!

Interesting 14. August 2013
Von Mark Schroeder - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I'm not sure where I read about this book, but it sounded very intriguing. (I have traveled frequently to Russia and Ukraine.) It was interesting, to say the least, but the nudity seems to have been far too gratuitous. I don't know, maybe I am missing something. Overall, I'm happy to have it on my bookshelf.

How wealthy we are in the Western World. 17. Juli 2000
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
First thing is first. Book is in colour. Did I not read that? Do not know, was expecting B&W. Second, 400 pages of which I believe 50+ were provactive and made me think. Provactivity was why I bought the book, and why I suspect others did/will too. Wanted to be woken up from my slumber: to know what it is really like over there. But 50/400 pages is not a high ratio, hence my 3 stars. (To be honest, some of the photos I felt I could've taken myself.) Notwithstanding this, there were some shots that demanded a reality check. How wealthy we are in the Western World...

Not for everyone, and certainly not for me. 28. Mai 2000
Von Pawel Fludzinski - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
For me, the only thing this book proves is that in the post-Soviet Ukraine, the homeless can be subjected to exploitation and forced loss of dignity for a small sum of money. The degrading conditions of the people could be shown without having the photographer subject the people to further degradation. By the way, this was the most poorly bound book that I have ever received. Upon the first (and last) reading, groups of 10-20 pages were coming out in handfuls. Not a problem - I threw it away.
