About this product
- DescriptionThis is the first book ever published on the famous Russian photographer Boris Mikhailov's fascinating early body of work entitled the Yesterday's Sandwich series. Boris Mikhailov (b.1938) is the most influential Russian photographer living today. An artist, a documentary photographer and a social observer, he has experimented with many photographic styles and his work is highly respected by both the photography world and contemporary art lovers. In this series from the late 60s to early 70s, he has overlaid two colour slides, creating fascinating sandwiches , i.e. beautifully composed tableaux of glamorous naked women, surreal urban landscapes and strange scenes of everyday Soviet life.
- Author BiographyBoris Mikhailov (b.1938) lived in his hometown of Kharkov in the Ukraine until the collapse of the USSR. Trained as an engineer, he worked in a factory until 1968, when he was forced to quit his job and he became a photographer. His work has been exhibited in major museums worldwide, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 1993, the Kunsthalle in Zurich in 1996, and more recently the Fotomuseum in Winterthur, which organized a retrospective show of his work in 2003. Boris Mikhailov now lives in Berlin.
