Pages 10 and 11 of the zine


The photos were taken by me in Ukraine, between 2019 - 2021. The idea is to show my country as it was, before the cities that you will see in the pictures were bombed.

Pages 8 and 9 of the zine


The zine consists of 4 different themes:

- Lonely person in the world
- Person in the society
- Family
- Death
