Artist Talk with Christopher Nunn — Impressions Gallery

Hear our exhibiting artist Christopher Nunn discuss his work in Borderland: Stories from Donbas and join in the Q&A session afterwards.   

Made over a period of six years, the exhibition offers a rare glimpse of everyday life in the Donbas region.  Situated at the far eastern edge of Ukraine, close to the border of Russia, this region is the site of the only active war zone in Europe. Nunn’s images capture the quiet moments and the overlooked details that are mostly away from the flashpoints of fighting and the spotlight of international news. With a constant focus on people’s everyday lives, their personal narratives and subjective struggles, his photographs tell small stories that are part of a bigger picture.

At 3.45pm join us to celebrate the launch of Chris’s newspaper, co-published by Impressions Gallery and Essarter Éditions, available to buy at £3.

Enjoy drinks and don’t forget to get your copy signed!
