Photographer Spends 10 Years Photographing Same Bench, Captures More Than He Expects
A Ukrainian photographer captured this bench for a decade.
The Decade For A Bench
Yevhen Kotenko captured this bench from his kitchen window for a decade and the pictures will surely make you feel a lot of things at once!
The Bench Has It All
This bench has seen different shades in different people, strangers, friends, foes discussing over a bottle of alcohol!
While the paint of the bench changed over these years, everything else remained same!
" I didn’t give myself any time limits or goals, I just went to the kitchen and looked out the window,”, he said
The Myriads of Emotions
“Usually there was something to see.”
Life Comes in different shades
Although Kotenko claimed he has fond memories of the neighbourhood he grew up in, “there were a lot of bad things, too, that is better not to think about.”
The Dreadful Reality
“The worst thing was seeing people I went to school with drinking on this bench, then crawling home like reptiles. I was scared that if I went outside, I’d become one of them.” Kotenko said the subjects he captured were oblivious to his camera.
The Bonds Grew
While some people bonded over the bench, others kept waiting for the right one!
There are a lot of emotions attached to the bench!
People sat here looking for solace and calmed themselves!
Lighting a cigarette, they discussed a thousands of issues!
And talked about millions of things
Friends chatting over a can of beer!
The Weather Change
The weather changed, years passed, but the bench remained strong!
The people warmed themselves sitting here!
Cried Here, Slept Here
These pictures will surely leave you feeling a lot of things, together!
Sitting In Solace
Everyone has a world inside them!
Too Many Emotions
And too fewer words to describe!
The Project Display
His project had been on display at a Kyiv art pub until January 26 and received mixed reactions. “Some people laughed, others complained that I just focused on the alcoholics.”
Though the photographer has moved from the home which offered him this view, his parents still live here!
