In the southern Ukrainian town where Boris Mikhailov's father was born, a factory spills untreated water directly out into the open sea.
Believing these waters to have healing powers, the local people enjoy swimming in it. All year round, families gather on the shore.
Mikhailov shot these photographs of Salt Lake in 1986.
