Publisher's Description

Edition limited to 200 Signed & Numbered copies.

The event is the 1932-33 famine in Soviet Ukraine, known today as the Holodomor, in which some millions of people, mostly peasants, died of starvation and related diseases. Although drought and crop failure may have been a factor, the famine was exacerbated by government mismanagement and the aggressive collectivization and industrialization policies, instituted by Stalin, that today are widely perceived as intentionally genocidal. The causes, impact and implications of this event have become a critical aspect of Ukrainian identity, both in the Ukraine and amongst the large populations of ethnic Ukrainians living elsewhere.

Maruschak has transformed her knowledge of this period by creating an artbook. It is a metaphor for memory, a process that is increasingly seen, not as simple recall, but as an elaborate mental function by which information is continuously stored, organized, changed and retrieved.

Awarded the Grand Prix at Kyiv’s 2019 Arsenal International Book Festival.
Shortlisted at the Athens Photo Festival 2019
Shortlisted for the 2019 Book Award at Rencontres de la photographie, Arles, France.
