On The Bench: Yevhen Kotenko Captures A Decade In The Life Of One Park Bench

In the suburb of Kyiv, friends gather, lovers meet and drinkers drink. While the faces change, the park bench remains the same. Shot from the fourth-floor window of Ukrainian photographer Yevhen Kotenko’s parents’ kitchen, this photo series captures life around a wooden bench in the Dniprovskyy suburb of the Ukrainian capital. Kotenko began capturing life on the bench in 2007 or 2008. ‘I didn’t give myself any time limits or goals, I just went to the kitchen and looked out the window. Usually there was something to see… All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players.’ – Yevhen Kotenko
