Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Japan is Boris Mikhailov's photographic statement from and on Japan. Best known for images of his native Ukraine, Mikhailov is concerned with ignored social realities and depicts his subjects with tragicomic compassion. By turning his attention to Japan, Mikhailov has joined other contemporary colour photographers such as Nan Goldin and Juergen Teller who have been fascinated by the country. Mikhailov's Japan displays sexual desire as an often repressed but underlying social factor.

Synopsis:

From Japan is exactly that, Boris Mikhailov's photographic statement from and on Japan. Best known for images of his native Ukraine, Mikhailov is concerned with ignored social realities and depicts people with tragicomic compassion.

About the Author

Boris Mikhailov, born in 1938 in Kharkov, Ukraine lives and works in the Ukraine and in Berlin. Case History documents Mikhailov's perception of social disintegration ensuing from the break-up of the Soviet Union - both in terms of social structures and the resulting human condition. Case History documents the social oppression, the devastating poverty, the harshness and helplessness of everyday life for the homeless.

His work is being shown throughout Europe and the United States, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Kunsthalle Zurich, Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, Sprengel Museum, Hannover, and Hasselblad Center, Göteborg.
