Currently showing in the Gallery and on until the 8th March:
Opening on the anniversary of Victor Yanukovych’s impeachment and escape, we’ll be presenting an exhibition of work by two Ukrainian fine art photographers, Sergiy Lebedynskyy and Alexey Ostrovskiy.
Sergiy’s lith prints taken during Euromaidan last year evoke the emotions, movement and chaos that place the viewer in the midst of Kiev protests, giving us a unique account of the events unlike the sterile, lifeless and detached digital images that we see in the media.
Alexey’s photographs created with a homemade large format camera on photographic paper are classical still lifes, portraits and experimental images, which render an intimate and quiet universe.
Pairing these images together we hope to show a fuller and more nuanced vision of Ukraine that can sometimes get lost amongst the stereotypes and grey reality presented to us.
Over a year on from the beginning of the protests and despite the continuous conflict, events in Ukraine are only now once again present in the British news due to recent escalations. With this exhibition, we would like to remind the audience of the situation that the people in the country are facing.
