Exhibition Opening with Christopher Nunn
Join us for the official opening of Borderland: Stories from Donbas and be the first to see this major solo show by award-winning photographer Christopher Nunn.
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.
Meet the artist, enjoy refreshments and buy a signed copy of the exhibition’s accompanying publication co-published with Essarter Editions.
