“UKRAINIANS” is a 70 photographs exhibition ordered by the French Embassy of Ukraine in 2007. Knowing my view on my country, my roots, the roots of my parents, they asked me to make a report on Ukrainians from various areas. I went to Lviv, the coal mines of Novovolensk and Chervonohrad, the Lemko’s churches of Uzhorod, the Carpathians mountains, Chernivtsi, Odessa, the shipyards of Mykolayiv, the Poltava region, Kharkiv and the Donetsk coal basin. My photographs make a colourful report of the daily lives and celebrations of the inhabitants. East from west, I have been warmly welcomed. And anyone in Ukraine you meet, feels overall, deeply “UKRAINIAN”.
