Ukraine Runs Through It

The original idea of Ukraine Runs Through It was to document the country away from daily politics with the Dnipro River as the metaphorical line of reference. When I started photographing in the spring of 2014, I had to adjust that concept. Witnessing the immediate and profound impact the revolution and the war had on people’s daily lives became an important element of my work, an inherent undercurrent in the river-themed project.

The book was shortlisted for the Photo Book Awards by Aperture Foundation (NY) and Paris Photo in the First Book Award category.
