Publisher: Stanley / Barker
Presented as a broadsheet paper, “Another Life” opens with a text by Ukrainian film-maker Iryna Tsilyk on the front page, a long essay about the difficult path towards today’s shared identity and culture in the Ukraine.
Following the text on the front page, American artist Jim Goldberg revisits photographs taken in the Ukraine in 2005 and 2006 for a project about migration: photos in color and black-and-white of ordinary Ukrainian lives that only become more impactful after reading Tsilyk’s text.
“If I had to depict a portrait of my generation – Ukrainian people born in the times of change, on the ruins of the empire – I would trip over this challenging task. We are all too different. We grew up in dissimilar regions of our big country at the crossroads of various influences, we spoke and speak different languages, we were formed as individuals in non-identical families and environments with different traumas of the past. And yet, it seems we have a lot in common. Regardless of our backgrounds, religions, views, social statuses and so on, we all grew up on shared desires and searching for another life.”
― from Iryna Tsilyk’s essay “Born in Times of Change, On the Ruins of the Empire”
