Description

Since the beginning of the war, the full-scale occupation of Ukraine, as a man of principles I have stayed in Kyiv.

This is my favorite city, a place where I was born, where my childhood passed and here I acquired all my knowledge and skills.

I knew that I can be useful here.  In March, I loaded sandbags necessary for the defense of the city, and then appeared an opportunity to engage in journalistic activity.

While traveling around the city and its environs, I made reports. I have seen plenty of things and realized how much the city has  changed during this period.

All habitual and familiar places turned into sinister and ugly forms. Anti-tank hedgehogs appeared on the streets, concrete checkpoints, sandbags became something usual and monuments became cubes and parallelepipeds.

I could not stay away from the events and decided to capture the world-famous tourist places in Kyiv, through the prism of my perception. I took my camera and went to shoot.

Sometimes this all was during an air raid alert and to the sound of a siren. Initially I set a goal for myself to avoid simple reporting and recording events.

Therefore, my choice fell on a camera that shoots in infrared spectrum and black and white tone. This technique allowed me to enhance the already oppressive atmosphere of the city. But that is not all. Then I printed the photos on transfer paper, loaded with gold leaf and transferred the image to watercolor paper.

The result was a series of works made according to the author’s technique.
