The book "The Hutsuls"
In the shadow of the Carpathians
127 photographs in the heart of a travel in the Hutsuls country. This region of the Carpathians is one of the most picturesque ones of Ukraine. In 2004, the French photographer Youry Bilak discovered the Kosmatch region. He was amazed by the beauty of nature and by the Hutsuls art. Therefore, the people, before all charmed the traveler. He set out to photograph their environment and their everyday life. The main objective of this book is to make a testimony for the next generation in order to preserve this inestimable patrimony that the Hutsul culture is. To do that, he visited the villages of Kosmach, Kryyvorivnia, Yavoriv, Sokolivka, Kosiv, photographing down the road the singularity and the authenticity of the villages’ inhabitants. He made a full panorama of the Hutsul culture and worked on the publication of the present book, dedicating it to the 600th anniversary of Kosmach (1412-2012), the larger village of the Hutsul region. We are convinced that this collection which is some kind of a chronicle of photographs of the Hutsuls country constitutes a precious testimony, both for Ukraine and for the rest of the world.
