Ethno Photographer Anna Senik Captures the Cultural Heritage of Ukraine

0

Anna Senik is on a mission to capture Ukraine’s cultural heritage before it’s lost forever. In her series of portraits, she showcases the traditional clothing of Ukraine’s various regions and ethnic groups.

These vibrant garments tell the story of Ukraine’s visual heritage, from intricate headwear to colorful jewelry to patterned dresses. By immortalizing these garments in photographs, Senik gives voice to Ukraine’s cultural heritage, which is under siege due to political turmoil and war.

For over ten years, Senik has worked as a photographer in Ukraine. Still, like many of her compatriots, she has chosen to adapt and serve in the Armed Territorial Defense to help defend her nation during the Russian invasion. “I had a wonderful year (or rather, even longer ago) last year,” she explains to Freeyork. “I concentrated solely on my art. There was a lot of motivation, labor, and journey for my staff. In 2021, we will produce a total of 33 series! Looking back, I appreciate how important and wonderful this period was.”
