Boris Mikhailov

Boris Mikhailov is one of the most important photographic chroniclers of life in the Ukraine before and after the demise of the Soviet Union.

In his extensive body of work, Mikhailov offers an intimate insight into everyday-life around him. Mikhailov’s works captivate through their blunt, honest documentation of social reality. On closer examination, the artist’s personal view and occasional political comment become visible.

Boris Mikhailov, born 1938 in Kharkov, Ukraine, lives and works in Berlin. He has been collaborating with BORCH Gallery & Editions since 2005.
