Publisher's Description

Provincial gigolos and leopard-clad ladies, rigorous businesswomen and young soldiers. You can meet all possible (and often impossible) kinds of characters while commuting on a train in Ukraine — or in Julie Poly’s Ukrzaliznytsia project, named after the country’s one and only railroad transportation enterprise. For a year, the artist has been making documentary and staged pictures on local trains, predominantly in Kyiv region, Eastern and Western parts of Ukraine.

The project depicts certain types of Ukrainian passengers as well as stereotypes about them, with the boundaries between reality and fiction being completely erased. The project was inspired by Julie Poly’s own observations but also by her real experience: she graduated from a railway university in Kharkiv, and even spent a whole summer working as a conductor.
