Good Stuff: Evi Lemberger

Here are some photos of Russian and Ukrainian interiors taken by Evi Lemberger. A majority of the photos are from my favorite project she has done, ein nichtort.

 ‘The project “ein nichtort- or the fairy tale of the galoshes of fortune” is a documentary project about the region Transcarpathia. Transcarpathia is a border region in the west of Ukraine, which underwent a lot of nationality changes within the 20th century. The people of this area belonged within this time to six different countries such as Hungary, Czech Slovaia, Soviet Union, Hungary again and then Ukraine. Nowadays it has 90% unemployment, is highly multilingual, – national and – religious and in no sense connected to the Ukrainian government. I went there in order to explore the peoples’ identity within their loss of national and cultural identity. ’ -Evi Lemberger
