The series is a documentary on the Ukrainian civil war, which may turn into a global military conflict. The images, captured between September 2014 and November 2015, show the war zone in Donetsk region as well as daily lives of rebel soldiers, civilians and refugees residing in refugee camps in Russia. This project is about people, their lives and emotions. My aim was to produce a set of images which can tell a story about the difficult situation all these people have been drawn into. I wanted to show their dignity in daily sacrifices they need to make and the dramatic effort to return to normality known before. It is a story of people who lost almost everything but not hope.
