Steel Bonsai, Ukraine 2014 (Print)
This image is taken from my 'Our Sincere Toils' series, photographed in 2014 during the 'Peoples Revolution' in Ukraine.
In the depths of a semi-abandoned post-soviet industrial estate, the artists I met had been producing security gates for the wealthy whilst using surplus materials for personal artistic projects. This piece was brought out from a hidden safe and placed outside the workshop for me to photograph.
I photographed this hand made artwork at an independent forgery in Brovary. My interactions with this satellite city and the residents became personally significant to me during this project and feature heavily in the wider exhibited series and book published in 2015.
