Ukraine: George Ivanchenko shares images and stories of life near the front lines

Ukrainian photographer George Ivanchenko gives a personal insight into what it is like to be living in the country today.

Ukrainian photographer George Ivanchenko shows a different side to the war in his home country. The 22-year-old captures the experiences of locals in the frontline cities of Kherson and Bakhmut, as well as in the formerly occupied cities of Chernihiv and Bucha. With his pictures, Ivanchenko brings the viewer into the everyday lives of Ukrainians living with the war.

Ivanchenko, a DW Akademie MediaFit scholarship recipient, has been published in The Washington Post, the New York Times and on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy's social media. His images were also the subject of a multimedia photo exhibition at the 2023 Global Media Forum in Bonn, Germany. The exhibition will once again be available during the open house event "Tag der offenen Tür" in Berlin at the German Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) on August 19 and 20. The photos are accompanied by stories from Ivanchenko. Here you can see a selection of the images and read excerpts from his account of the war.

The exhibition "Unbreakable" was created as part of the EU and BMZ-funded project "MediaFit Programme for Southern and Eastern Ukraine". Through the Creators Fund, MediaFit supports journalists and media professionals from the south and east of Ukraine, like George Ivanchenko.
