Photo exhibition “Survive the War”
23.08.2022 @ 08:00 - 23.09.2022 @ 17:00
On August 23rd, one day ahead of the Independance Day, LUkraine absl, the Association of Ukrainians in Luxembourg, is opening a photo exhibition in their office (kindly provided by KPMG).
We invite people of Luxembourg to join us in discovering Ukraine through the eyes and lenses of two Ukrainian photographers.
Konsyantyn Sova and Serhiy Morugin have come together to share what they have seen in two areas of Ukraine – Kyiv, the capital and it’s suburbs (such as Bucha), and Kharkiv region in the East of Ukraine. Uniting the two cities is the personality of Astamur Humba, who’s memorial Peace Fund is co-organizing the event. Step-son to one of the photographers, Astamur was born in Abkhazia and as a child had to flee to Ukraine, when Russia orchestrated a war in Georgia. Although not a citizen of Ukraine or someone who’s ever had to hold a gun in his hands, this young professional with successful career in IT had decided he wouldn’t flee again. Instead, he joined Kyiv Territorial Defense – a volunteer branch of Ukrainian army, quickly organized after the full-scale invasion started. Astamur went on to serve in the Ukrainian army and was sent to fight for Kharkiv – second biggest city of Ukraine, that is suffering from attacks every day and night since the morning of February 24th 2022. Astamur died a month ago.
