July 2022 Picture of the Month

As we welcome the first Ukrainians into our village, I have chosen an image from my travels in Ukraine twenty years ago as my picture of the month for July. The setting is the historic buildings collection assembled at Pirogov outside Kyiv, which I visited in July 2002 to photograph traditional timber post houses which had been rebuilt there from their original locations. This was part of my journey to Russia and Ukraine in the footsteps of the Victorian photographer Roger Fenton, who had travelled there 150 years before me and whose biography, published by Gordon Fraser, I completed in 1975. Bronica 645 camera, 50mm lens, Fujifilm 50S colour transparency film. For this abstraction of the original image, the picture has been 'posterised'.
