Such strange and evocative images are what make Bitter Honeydew transportive in a way that few straight documentary photo essays are.

Synopsis

Golovchenko depicts the lives of those who run roadside stalls in Ukraine – where they sell fruit according to season. The merchants, many of them coming from Azerbaijan and Georgia, mix with locals and live close to their makeshift emporiums in tents and trailers. Golovchenko’s images talk about his compassion for these uprooted people, about the bitterness in their lives.
