When I first moved to Kyiv's Obolon borough I found it to be an oversized post-colonial leftovers within the city. Recently arriving from New York, this was a change for me. To better grasp it, when I would walk around the neighborhood, I started taking pictures. Capturing spontaneous moments that felt more intimate to me personally within this suburban spread. After, when looking through the photos, I decided to add vibrant color to each composition - as means to create a faux-vintage feel such as sepia toned photos from the past. In this way I found I rediscovered Obolon literally in the new light. Highliting a sense of wonder and curiosity within the plain, existing context, while at the same time giving it more depth. Its an exercise to get closer to place where I was, and a way to take yet another, deeper look at it.
