The Winners

The Winners’ by Rafal Milach documents state and local competitions supported by the Belarusian authorities. The list of winners includes the best of the best in contests promoting beauty, public space maintenance, milk maids, Jennifer Lopez look-alikes and potato farmers. Winners are presented in kolkhozes, schools, public institutions, nightclubs, village discos and on Boards of Honour in almost each Belarusian town.

Public Order is Sarah Pickering’s exploration a ‘town’ purpose built for the training of public safety officers. On first glance the images seem to depict an unsettling town, uniform and bland shop fronts and houses clothed in a blanket of grey – with nothing but a field beyond the threshold of a front door. The result is that we relook at our own surroundings and our own conception of realist.
