This project examines the quickly changing commercial landscape of Ukraine and its impact on the work force. By moving indoors, into corporate supermarkets and malls, it is becoming more Westernized and homogeneous. The archive of images of street vendors and other small, unlicensed businesses records an element of Ukrainian visual culture as it disappears. Not without irony, the beach portraits capture a black-market economy in the sunshine.
