Overview participating exhibitions
When in January, 2014, the peaceful protests on Maidan Square in Kiev erupted into a violent and bloody confrontation due to the interventions of the police and army, the Ukrainian photographers Vladyslav Krasnoshchok and Sergiy Lebedynskyy couldn’t remain indifferent. They immediately travelled to Kiev and sought to literally stand their ground with their cameras in the midst of the violence and biting cold. They stayed on the square for two days, to record as much of what was happening there as they could. Despite having no helmets, gas masks or orange press vests, they survived the events without a scratch and left the city with all their photos.
