Loneliness. The sound of silence day after day for years. All these people live alone for decades. During the shooting, I asked everyone what they dream of. I was shocked by their answers. To fall asleep and no longer wake up is what my heroes want.
In Vyshgorod, Kyiv region, for 10 years, one person gives meal for those who need it. Every day Svitlana makes 20 lunches in her small cafe.
Shooting took place in the house of old or lonely Jewish people. Photos have been used to help collect donations to repair their apartments.
Each apartment tells its own story. Every person has lived a long and interesting life.
Shooting for National Geographic
A woman and her child are photographed in the Romashka camp. “When the war came to Donetsk, my husband went to fight in the ATO [Ukrainian Antiterrorist Operation]. Since then I have been living alone with a kid”
Shooting for me)
Love. Home. Motherland
This is my home. My great-grandfather's mother was born here. I'm not sure about our family history before that. It is here where my family survived the Holodomor. It’s my family’s place of power.
There is nothing tastier than grandma's soup. There is nothing better than tea from your favorite cup. Love.
