Victoria Ivleva: from Chernobyl to War

Victoria Ivleva: from Chernobyl to War


This Saturday, March 26, 2016,  at 17.00, IZONE holds a public talk of Victoria Ivleva, russian photographer, the winner of the World Press Photo Award for reportage from Chernobyl reactor (1990). This time Victoria visits Ukraine for her new photo project, which, in particular, she will speak about during the public talk this Saturday.

Victoria Ivleva about Ukraine:

“It seems to me that it is very nice to be a documentary photographer in your gentle country: the people here are always willing to contact, they never suspect you in evil intentions, they help as much as they can – in other words, the people’s behavior here is a dream of any photographer. My first photographic meeting with Ukraine was back in 1990, when I entered the reactor hall of Unit 4 at Chernobyl, my latest photo project dedicated to Ukraine, is in process right now.”

The Project is made possible with the support of the Human Rights Fund of the Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands
