The shops. This series of photographs continues the main theme of the Ukrainian countryside. These shops are located outside the big city in small towns and villages. They are very different from regular supermarkets.
The building itself is just a place and sometimes not suited for commercial activities. They can be part of a residential building or consist of it. These shops are a safe haven for local residents. And for these people, this is the only place where you can buy the necessary products or goods. In many villages there is no shop, and to the nearest one you need to walk sometimes up to 10 km. Some have already been closed forever, as people have left this place or there are so few residents that it is not profitable to maintain the store, they just stand slowly collapsing.
