Sergey Bratkov: Glory Days : Works 1989-2008 Hardback
Edited by Thomas Seelig, Mikhail Ryklin, Bart De Baere, Boris Buden
The Ukrainian photographer Sergey Bratkov started his career in 1987 with his first solo shows in Kharkiv (Ukraine), Cheb (Czech Republic), and Tel Aviv (Israel).
He has since enjoyed international recognition from solo and group exhibitions in Europe and the United States.
Bratkov also participated in international art fairs, the Sao Paulo Biennale 2002, the Moscow Photobiennale, and with a solo exhibition in the Russian pavillion at the 50th Venice Biennale 2003.
Bratkov's photography shows a socially critical, politically motivated artist, but also has a lyrical edge.
His pictures are a direct and at times unsparing portrayal of everyday life since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
Bratkov's photographs have rarely been published. This first comprehensive monograph shows work of the past two decades.
The pictures are complemented by essays on the artist and his environment in Russia and Ukraine.
