Донбасс (Donbas): Photography from Ukraine’s war-torn east

Донбасс (Donbas): Photography from Ukraine’s war-torn east

Examines the humanitarian impact of daily war in Ukraine’s east.

Exhibition: Friday 27 April – Sunday 27 May 2018 

Opening: Thursday 26 April, 6 - 8 pm

After four years and over 10 000 deaths, conflict continues to threaten over 4 000 000.

Ukrainians, at risk by daily artillery shelling and sporadic combat. The Donbas project examines the humanitarian impact of daily war in Ukraine’s east through the presentation of photographs and video work focused on the effects war has on its large civilian population.

Shot across four years and as many visits to the affected area, Bryce Wilson’s compelling images, accompanied by deeply moving stories, give a uniquely stark insight into a globally underreported humanitarian crisis. Over 1 700 000 people have been forced from their homes, and more flee each day.
