Photographs about the practices of taking pictures of the workers:
“The most horrible thing to do for photographers, in the context of the factory labs, was to take photos of people for the walls of honor. That was a crowd of hegemon that you needed to capture, and to produce the photos without delay” (Oleksandr Parkhomenko, oral interview, 2020).
“A man would come, with a huge red nose, as on the previous night he had a reason to celebrate. And you had to make a nice photo of him. Or, a woman having her first time of a studio photo. A modest machine operator gets scared of a camera, and keeps gawking.” (Oleksandr Lysenko, oral interview, 2021).
