What's in the book?
In November 2013, I visited Western Ukraine. Spending time with Ukrainian people of my own age, I began to understand the problems and restrictions they faced.
During this period I witnessed Ukraine's response to the European trade deal U-turn that had enormous economic and political implications. This experience resulted in a fascination with the culture and politics of Ukraine and I decided to go back to the country to continue observing and exploring this proud, complex and troubled nation.
I returned to Kyiv on the 21st of February, 2014 - the day after more than 100 pro-European militants were shot dead by government forces and the course of Ukraine's history was irrevocably altered. In the second part of this project, I travelled across the country, exploring and interacting with life outside the Euromaidan protest site and the capital city. I wanted to gain an insight into how ordinary Ukrainian people sought to free themselves from corruption and exploitation by the ruling government.
My imagery represents a personal record of the everyday lives of individuals and families against the backdrop of Ukraine's uprising. I was interested in the human details of a country going through a swift revolution and subsequent annexation of part of its territory.
The photographs contemplate the aftermath of Ukraine's bloody uprising that lead to the ousting of President Viktor Yanukovich and the unpredictable future facing the people I met and made lifelong friends with on this journey.
Contains 28 photographs taken by Sussex in Ukraine in 2014. The second edition has extra photographs and texts.
