Each May veterans of World War II come out into the streets of post-soviet cities under victory banners. In 2015 sixty thousand World War II veterans, who reached the age of 85, are left in Ukraine.     364 days a year those who crossed the fields of World War II more than half a century ago presently live in an abandoned and devastated state, witnessing the memories of their war pass under another color. The color of internal fight and pseudo-political speculation running even higher each year in Ukraine.

 

 

 

 

This series is a tribute to mortality of human being, fragility of humankind memory, one battleground turning into another. A landscape of weary lives in the glow of sparkling medals and carefully preserved parade uniforms. Symbols of entities fading right before our eyes, still firm with its iron cold grip.
