About this title


Australian photographer Daniel King landed in Kiev, Ukraine, in the summer of 2013, just as the "Rise up, Ukraine!" demonstrations, which had started in May, were beginning to shake the capital and the region. Instead of photographing the protests, King turned his camera on a group of Ukrainian teenagers and the architecture of the city they inhabited, meeting them in the streets, in their shared house, at the lake or drinking in the public parks. He captured the nuances of their daily life together, one which was strangely unaltered by the monumental political events taking place just a couple of blocks away from their gathering places. Ukraine Youth: Between Days, the photographer's first book, presents something unseen in the news―what it was like to grow up in Kiev for a generation living its last moments of carefree fun.


hot in the final months of 2013 leading up to Ukraine’s descent into civil war, King’s photographs document the innocent revelry and flirtations of kids whose country’s fate is increasingly uncertain. King’s candid work falls somewhere between Larry Clark and Nan Goldin, and his interest in Ukrainian teens is part of a larger project he is working on, photographing “youth culture around the world.” (Joseph Akel T Magazine, online)

The photographs he has produced for Ukraine Youth are a great example of that, beautifully composed yet defined as real, something it is rare to see in today’s digitally enhanced world. These are not models; they are street-cast kids with whom he has developed a relationship, and a friendship. (William Oliver Another Magazine)

Rather than document the demonstrations, King found himself drawn to the teenagers he encountered on the streets and parks and riversides. What he wound up capturing in his forthcoming book, Ukraine Youth: Between Days (Damiani), wasn’t exactly activism, but a youthful spirit that embodies equal parts freedom and rebellion, romanticism and nonchalant cool―an almost accidental expression of style set against the landscape of post-Soviet architecture. (Rebecca Bengal

In his first publication, Ukraine Youth: Between Days (Damiani), Daniel King, who arrived in Kiev, Ukraine, in 2013, turned his lens not to the civil unrest but toward the city's architecture and a group of teenagers living out the generation's last carefree moments before a great political upheaval. (Suzanne Shaheen

Ukraine Youth Between Days is a stunning depiction of a turning point in the history of a nation. It seems almost contrite to say that it would make a great coffee table book but it would. The photos are beautiful and if you’re looking to have a politically charged conversation with your guests, then this book is the catalyst. (Michelle Gadd

Here’s another photography book that will soon be added to my collection. It’s the idea of a planned-spontaneous type of photos that angles on the emotion and lifestyle of the current generation of our time - Despite the approach of a political turmoil, one can still find that raw-organic, and light-hearted vibes that attract us to explore further. (Vincent Law Binzento Vincente)
