Ukrainian photography and depiction of personal tragedies

At the height of the Russian-Ukrainian war, art remains the thing that helps people to get through difficult times. Sometimes, it serves as a catharsis and occasionally documents the reflections on war trauma or becomes therapeutic.

Photography is one of the most influential media that shows and explains Russian war crimes to the world. Even if the works are not directly connected with war, they are undoubtedly war-related, influenced by the everyday experience of living through war.

Projects of Ukrainian photographers document not only Russian war crimes, ruins, and losses but also human emotions and life experiences during the war. There are plenty of ways to tell the world about the Ukrainian experience — and photography is terse and eloquent.

UKRAINE IN FLAMES project is created by Ukraine Crisis Media Center and NGO “Euroatlantic Course”. We are aiming at searching a loud support for Ukraine in the war started by Russia on the 24th of February 2022.
