Photographers from Mykolayv (Nikolaev in Russian) declared themselves against war
June 12, 2014 – Photographers from Mykolaiv desided to express their attitude towards current position in Ukraine. They teamed up in a new project entitled “Ukraine in Flames” in order to protest the war. The project was started at the beginning of March.
According to Julia Kareva – main project coordinator and the model the objective was to show that the war (and revolution) touches every person, no matter who you are – a healthy young man, his mother, military, fragile woman, or child. If the war is in your country, it will not work to remain indifferent, no matter how reluctant you are.
Young woman on photos embodies carefree and happy Ukraine, which was on fire, and she has to fight even if it is not peculiar to her.
