Victoria Ivleva about Ukraine:
"It seems to me that it is very nice to be a documentary photographer in your gentle country: the people here are always willing to contact, they never suspect you in evil intentions, they help as much as they can - in other words, the people’s behavior here is a dream of any photographer. My first photographic meeting with Ukraine was back in 1990, when I entered the reactor hall of Unit 4 at Chernobyl, my latest photo project dedicated to Ukraine, is in process right now."
The event is made possible with the support of the Human Rights Fund of the Netherlands Embassy in Ukraine.
