Witness: Ukraine is aimed at displaying images and videos of Ukrainian photographers and video makers to the world audience. The worldwide interest of recent events and conditions in the Ukraine have not received adequate media coverage. VASA, through its Witness platform is giving voice to individual image makers in the Ukraine. Although our primarily interest is in the recent political issues and developments of the civic society in the Ukraine, we do not limit your voice. All aspects of Ukraine’s contemporary life, all genres of photography and video from reportage to art photography/video will be represented.
