By Now- CONTEMPORARY PHOTOGRAPHY FROM BELARUS

This first-ever book on the young Belarusian photography scene was initiated by Andrei Liankevich with the support of the Goethe Institute in
Minsk.
The individual photographs and groups of works were selected from a variety of submissions and range from classic black-and-white portraits to flashy Photoshop experiments. The focus of artistic interest is always on human subjects in diverse everyday situations, whether sunbathing on the town beach in their spare time, enjoying a breakfast break at a bus station, or as proud war veterans. The pictures paint a timeless and contemporary picture of life in Belarus rather than offering a representative portrayal of day-to-day realities, sometimes with documentary intention, and at other times with an ironic twist. World War II and the defeat of the German occupiers is evidently still today an important »official« theme for Belarusian society, a fact that is visually commented on by the alternative art scene. Hardly any of these images have been published or exhibited to date.
