Fashion Eye Ukraine
Fashion Eye Ukraine edited by Patrick Remy
Synchrodogs, the duo formed by Roman Noven and Tania Shcheglova, can often be found exploring the Ukrainian Carpathians by motorbike. Their “Slightly Altered” series, the fruit of several trips through these mountains, offers a fresh perspective on the intimate relationship between human beings and nature, also contemplating its headlong course toward a looming disaster.
Through landscapes, dance and performance, they condemn deforestation and call attention to the plight of endangered species. It is an original vision populated by both dreams and nature, a land art project that ventures into nude photography, even if some unbothered by clichés might perceive their approach as a nose-thumbing rebuke to the Soviet era’s insistence that naked bodies only had their place in the great paintings of an earlier age.
Bilingual French/English editions, including biographical information, an interview with the photographer or a critical essay, and photo captions.
