Once Upon The War: Introducing The Kharkiv School of Photography

Kharkiv School of Photography is an artistic milieu that emerged in the 1970s in the city of Kharkiv, Ukraine. It was a school of aesthetic thought which never had any official status, where ‘education’ happened in clubs and coffee shops — not a school to attend classes. Still, the artists created an original visual language that broke free from the dominant Soviet dogma in arts. It defined the discourse for the next generations in Kharkiv and entire Ukraine and evolved into a distinctive aesthetic system, offering a documentary chronicle of over 50 years of its history.

Heavily bombed by the Russian army, several photographers of the group still remain in Kharkiv, as others managed to escape leaving their archives behind. An operation to preserve these documents is ongoing.

Ukrainian Artist Creates These Tragic Drawings Illustrating Horrors Of The War

According to Olga Wilson, an artist based in Ukraine: “I would like to share my “war notes” made through drawings. We have only one home – it’s our planet. We should keep it safe.

In the 21st century we, all people and countries, should evolve and never act from a position of force, but from a position of negotiations, diplomacy, rationalism and consensus. It’s the main goal of humanity.

War is the worst mistake.

The best solution for war is never to start it.

We all are connected. Our energies and souls are connected.

Use your energy to create good, not evil.”
