More: War does not knock at your door asking if she can enter. It does not warn you of what will happen to your life, your family, your community, your city, or your country. She will not tell you what your future will be. It destroys and takes everything from you without warning. In return, you have only one thing left - the opportunity to fight back.

The Ukrainians decided to fight back. Since February 24, 2022, millions of Ukrainians have been resisting Russia's invasion of their country. Some of them rushed to the front line, stretching for hundreds of kilometers, while others decided to use their skills to help the country resist. This exhibition testifies to the sacrifices Ukrainians make and the devastating impact of the war on the lives of Ukrainian communities across the country.

Sasha Maslov is a Ukrainian-American portrait photographer and storyteller based in New York. His works have been exhibited in various photo galleries and art spaces in Europe and the USA.
