Ukraine: War and Resistance

March 23 – May 14, 2023

With the beginning of Russia’s war against Ukraine, a cohort of Fulbright photographers, both Ukrainian and American, found themselves at the epicenter of momentous events, equipped with their ultimate weapon, their cameras. They managed to capture the heroic, devastating, and hopeful moments of the present life in Ukraine. 

View an exhibit of 41 haunting images of the war in Ukraine photographed by seven Fulbright Scholars. Most of the photographs were taken in the past 12 months, but some date back as far as 2014, when Russia first invaded Ukraine and annexed its Crimean Peninsula.

“There are no blood and guts in these photos; they show the horror of war in the eyes of children, the men and women living in ruins, the resolve of the Ukrainian people,” says Fulbright Association of Minnesota Chapter president, Michael Dorsher, Ph.D. 

This will be the North American premiere of these large-scale photographs (25-by-20 inches), first exhibited last fall in Vinnytsia, a central Ukraine city under Russian missile attacks for the past year.

The Fulbright Association Minnesota Chapter paid for printing and mounting the photographs.
