Small Economy

Words

The series ‘Small Economy’ by Olena Slyesarenko focuses on the quickly changing commercial landscape of Ukraine and its impact on the work force. The images of beach vendors and other small, unlicensed businesses record an element of Ukrainian visual culture as it disappears. Not without irony, the beach portraits capture a black-market economy in the sunshine.
