Joining the likes of Cindy Sherman, Robert Frank, and William Eggleston, Mikhailov received the prestigious Hasselblad Award in 2000 for a body of work that spans from the heart of the Cold War to post-Soviet Ukrainian society. His haunting images often touch on the artifice of modern life but are mostly documentary in content and style, and he is best known in the United States, at least for images of decaying civilization during the years under and just after Soviet rule (see, for instance, Unfinished Dissertation and Case Study). So the 1978 series of dreamy photographs reproduced here at first seems unrepresentative, showing happy couples dancing an afternoon away in a large communal courtyard. While neither the four-page essay nor the six-page interview focuses on this series, they do help the reader to understand Mikhailov's motivations here and in the more brooding work and to create ties between them. General collections might wait for a more complete retrospective of this talented photographer's work, but art and photography collections should add this small gem. Eric Bryant, "Library Journal"
