Maks Skrzeczkowski / “Normal war”

Stara Galeria ZPAF

There is no war without testosterone.
In December 2004, I went to Ukraine as an international
observer of the presidential elections. Since then I’ve been returning there many times. This year alone, I’ve been there 4 times (all together 46 days). Thousands of kilometers, hundreds of human history, tens of dramas …
I take photos to better understand the surrounding world. The longer I’m doing it the less I understand.

The „Normal War” project has been created since February 2014 in Ukraine. The series includes 24 photos.
