Photography book about Ukrainian balconies, with photos by Oleksandr Burlaka.
Voyer into peoples' lives through Ukrainians' motley and odd balconies — a product of unregulated space. This photo book documents this unique architectural phenomenon by telling the story of its origin and its do-it-yourself double-sidedness: beautiful, ugly, plastic, wooden, old-fashioned, modern, painted, and glazed balconies, full of stuff and covered in flowers. Each balcony is unique, like its owner.
Balcony Chic is a great edition to anyone interested in Soviet architecture, Eastern Europe, Ukrainian urban scene and photography in general.
Inside Balcony Chic you will find:
More than 100 photos of balconies from across Ukraine; Beautiful layout; Insightful introduction about the history of balconies and an explanation of this architectural phenomenon in Ukraine.
