Based in the outskirts of Kiev, a prosperous young three-piece made up of Victor, Julian and Maria, known collectively as Gorsad, capture the nuance of an alternative Ukraine; a counter-culture largely vacant from mainstream media. Their youthful photography contrasts the devastating incidents plaguing their home country with a rawness of imagery synonymous with the aesthetic prevalence of home video footage seen on the frontline of street battlegrounds. The art collective explain: "We want to convey a certain mood and taste of youth. The older we are, the more conservative we become and it's very sad. Permissiveness of youth is exactly what heals, even in the most difficult situations". Oftentimes sexually-charged, awash with teen-angst and playfully off-beat, Gorsad coherently embody a Ukraine inhabited by a reluctant, yet positive youth; a scene seemingly absent of turmoil, although irreverently recognisable. It's an incredible body of work with some striking photographs.
