Press Release, Monday, 21st September, 2015


The ‘Fragile Independence’ Photo Exhibition, the first of its kind in the UK, opened its doors to visitors at the Ukrainian Community Centre in London on 19th-20th September 2015. The exhibition comprised well over a hundred photographs and contrasts the boundless beauty of the Ukrainian land, people and their enduring culture with the conflict artificially instigated from outside by Russia.

‘Fragile Independence’ featured internationally renowned photographer and correspondent Sergei Loiko of the Los Angeles Times. He is the only foreign correspondent who witnessed some of the worst fighting at the Donetsk airport in the East of Ukraine. Sergei recently published a novel ‘The Airport’: “a story about the war that should never have happened and heroes who wanted to live but died”.

The exhibition included works by other prominent international and Ukrainian photographers, such as, for example, the members of the Ukrainian Association of Professional Photographers Alexey Kolobov and Ivan Bogdan, and the film director Ivan Kravchyshyn in collaboration with the Lviv Museum of Folk Architecture and Rural Life.<
