About the artwork

“My work is built on symbols and embodies my fantasies about the future. I see Ukraine without war, so a dove appears in the frame as a symbol of peace. The main characters of the photo are representatives of a new generation, they personify changes. Amidst a picturesque landscape, each of the groups represents different parts of Ukraine. All of them are united in a single frame symbolizing the unity of the country.”
