Yelena Yemchuk’s photographs of Gidropark, Kiev, Ukraine were taken in the summers of 2005 through 2008.  The exhibition is concurrent with the release of Gidropark (Damiani, 2011).  Gidropark, which Yemchuk likens to a “Soviet version of Coney Island,” was built in 1968 on the River Dnieper as a recreational complex.
