Boris Mikhailov

Born in Kharkov, 1938 and lives in Ukraine and Berlin

Since the mid 1960s, Boris Mikhailov has explored photography’s full range of possibilities and produced an uncompromising yet ironically humorous portrait of his close surroundings. His tireless investigations into photographic techniques and stylistic means, as well as his frequent alternation between conceptual and documentary work have contributed to his position as one of the most influential photographers living today.
His recent solo exhibitions have been held at the Sprengel Museum, Hannover (2013), Museum of Modern Art, New York (2011) and Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna (2010). A selection of his work was featured in ‘Photography: New Documentary Forms’ at Tate Modern, London (2012).
Mikhailov is the recipient of the 2012 Spectrum International Prize for photography, the Citibank 2001 Photography Prize, the 2000 Hasselblad Foundation International Award and the 1999 Krazna-Krausz Photography Book Award for ‘Case History’. Mikhailov participated in the Venice Biennial collateral projects in 2011 and represented Ukraine at the 2007 Venice Biennial.
