From the 4th – 13th of May 2022

On the 24th of February, at 5:00 o’clock in the morning, the time stopped. At this moment, the first Russian soldiers crossed the Ukrainian border. This is a point of no return, turning to a mortifying page of European history. 

The war shows the true nature of people. It undresses people, and peels off all artificial layers to expose who they really are. 

At Magenta gallery, we invite you to connect with the true nature of Ukrainians, by seeing their resilience, as captured by talented Ukrainian and European photographers – Slava Ratynski, Yana Sidash, Mikhail Palinchak, Serhii Hudak, Yurko Dyachyshyn, Aziz Karimov, Olha Malinina, and Nicolas Cortes. 

Every photo has a story, that needs to be told. 

As a part of the exhibition, we will be glad to present a selection of charity organisations that directly support Ukraine. 

We invite you to the opening Wednesday the 4th of May from 12-17. The exhibition will run to the 13th of May.
