Bitesize: Talk and tour with Asiya Hussain every Saturday — Impressions Gallery

Pop in to Impressions Gallery on Saturdays at 12pm to learn a little bit more about the exhibition from our friendly Gallery Assistant, Asiya Hussain. The talk is perfectly timed to follow on from Story Time in City Library, next door to the Gallery.

Asiya says, ‘Join me for a casual 5-minute introductory talk about Borderland: Stories from Donbas by Christopher Nunn. It’ll be short, brief and to the point!” Afterwards, feel free to browse our wide range of photobooks in our bookshop, or check out the family activities at Saturday Stop if you’re interested in some colouring and creativity.

Made over a period of six years, Borderland: Stories from Donbas 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.
