BRAVE TO BRING THE LIGHT
The photobook "Brave to Bring the Light" is about the most difficult winter in the history of independent Ukraine so far. It includes photographs by more than 30 Ukrainian authors who documented the energy crisis caused by the Russian military's attack on Ukrainian infrastructure facilities during the fall of 2022, winter and spring of 2023. But above all, this is a visual book about the struggle of Ukrainians for light, both inside and outside, and about the courage of each of them to continue working in their fields because darkness disappears where light comes out. The edition includes a foreword by a prominent Ukrainian cultural figure Vlad Troitsky, as well as accompanying texts to three chapters and captions written by the authors for their photographs that further expand the context.
The profit from the sale of the book will be transferred for the 2nd Mountain Assault Battalion of the 128th Mountain Assault Brigade.
