Yelena Yemchuk’s photographs of Gidropark, Kiev
“Yelena Yemchuk’s photographs of Gidropark, Kiev, Ukrain, were taken in the summer of 2005 through 2008. Gidropark, which Yemchuk linkens to a “Soviet version of Coney Island” was built in 1968 on the River Dnieper as recreational complex.
Best known for her fashion and portrait photography, this series is very personal to Yemchuk, who was born in Ukraine in 1970 and spent her summers as a child visiting this park. Her images made on the beaches, sports grounds and woodlands that populate the park capture characters and an atmosphere that is Felliniesque. There is a timeless quality about this place; it is both caught in the past, while at the same time, full of the life of today.”
