Publisher's Description

'I grew up in a big city, and perhaps that was the reason why I was always intrigued by small community life in the country. A certain Boiko village in the Ukrainian Carpathian Mountains became the place where my ideas about idyllic rural life materialised. What I looked for were the ambience and motifs that reminded me of the fairy tales that I had heard as a child, growing up in neighbouring Poland, within whose borders the village I photographed had been located before the war.' — Jan Brykczynski

Boiko holds itself, in the spirit of Jan's words, like a fairytale. The images suggest rural life, but a deeper life beneath that; one of tradition and folklore and connection with the land.

Boiko features a wrap-around magnetic cover which clasps to keep it closed. The first edition has been printed in a run of 550 copies.
