“The Price of Life” photo exhibition showed Europe the truth about Kherson region
Our team travelled to Europe to organise a sensitive photo exhibition, The Price of Life. It shows the real horrors experienced by residents of the Kherson region.
Through his lens, Oleksandr Tolokonnikov was able to convey the heroism and indomitable spirit of the Ukrainian people. We are grateful to Oleksandr for his trust in us and for not being afraid to film everything that is happening in these dark times.
“The Price of Living” is a photographic story about the pain, horror, resilience and strength of the people of Kherson.
It was our first business trip abroad and with such an important mission, so we were very nervous. But, there was no need to worry. Thanks to the support of Ukrainians and local residents, everything went incredibly well.
As those who organised the photo exhibition for the first time, we did not expect such a success. We had a lot of people who came to visit us and supported us not only with their presence but also with donations. All the money raised will be used to restore the Kherson region.
Our first stop was the Czech city – České Budějovice, where everyone felt the full range of emotions. And the second was Bratislava, which was visited by Kherson residents who witnessed everything depicted in the photos with their own eyes.
We are sincerely grateful to everyone who visited us and to the Ukrainian Community Centre “Nadiya” and the Ukrainian Institute in Bratislava for their cooperation and assistance in organising the events.
The Rise of Ukraine team does not plan to stop and believes that this event has become the beginning of a platform for expressing support and solidarity of every European with the residents of Kherson region.
Anyone can join this mission by donating on our website.
Building the future together with Rise 💙💛
