Thanks to everyone who came to Bildband for Silva Bingaz’s exhibition opening and her fascinating talk about her work.
The show is up until the 1st October, come down and have a look.
We have signed copies of Silvas book Japan Coast too!
Many thanks to Sergiy Lebedynskyy from Shilo Group for coming to Bildband to talk about Chronicle and show pictures from the book.
‘The book “Chronicle” features the photographs taken between 2010 and 2015 in the Ukraine. Arranged in chronological sequence the chapters of the book equally are a reaction to changes in our lives as well as their documentation. Front-line Kharkiv, revolutionary Kiev, Donetsk and Lugansk regions, shown in “Chronicle”, are the scenes of actions that will determine the future of Ukraine and, of course, the whole of Europe.’
Calin Kruse – Die Nacht Publishing
“We were taught in school that we were born in the best country and that we were sure to get the victory over everybody else. In a little while the country seized to exist. It is believed that the 90s were a time of changes and cataclysms, but for us it has all started just now.”

Thanks to everyone who came to the launch of the book ‘Ukrainian Night’ last night, especially the authors Miron Zownir and Kateryna Mishchenko, and Anne König from Spector Books.
‘In 2012/13 the photographer Miron Zownir and Kateryna Mishchenko, a Ukrainian writer and translator, visited the Ukraine to explore everyday life there from its margins. Zownir photographed drug addicts from Poltava, homeless people at Kiev’s main station, street children in Odessa and Chernivtsi and the inhabitants of several Roma camps. Mishchenko’s sensitive texts and Zownir’s close-up images document the profound fault lines in Ukrainian society, in which the harbingers of revolution can already be felt.’ Spector Books
