Ukrainian Railroad Ladies

Présentation

“Ukrainian Railroad“ Ladies is a series of portraits of people who work as traffic controllers and safety officers at railroad crossings in Ukraine. They spend their long shifts in the little houses built along the tracks specifically for them. These railroad houses play a prominent role in Ukrainian rural and suburban landscapes. It is also an exploration of why this profession still exists in the 21st century, given the almost full automation of railroad crossings in Ukraine.
