`Just come by` is a unique project in which Olena Bilous takes photos to document her visitors of last month in lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic in Ukraine, Vyshhorod. 
This photo studio is in Olena’s bedroom. All portraits were made for food or donation.

Own project

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 for www.reformjudaism.org.uk

 

The 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.

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.
