Kostya and Vlada Liberov invite to the exhibition of photos from the front «Contact Line»


On April 4, UAPF members, spouses of photojournalists Kostiantyn and Vlada Liberov, will present a series of photographs from the war at VDNKh in Kyiv. The exposition includes more than 150 documentary photos and videos taken over the past two years in frontline cities and directly on the front line.


During the full-scale war, Kostya and Vlada traveled to the hottest spots of the frontline, documenting the consequences of Russian shelling and the work of the Ukrainian military. Kostyantyn spent many hours with the infantry on the ground, accompanying assault teams on assaults to show what a titanic effort it takes to save every piece of land.


"We are recording a terrible reality full of losses and pain that the enemy has brought to our land. All for the sake of the main goal - not to let anyone forget that there is a war going on in Ukraine, because it can only be ended if everyone makes every effort to do so. Therefore, the large exhibition at VDNKh is another opportunity to focus attention on this topic and raise aid for our military: each entrance ticket will become a donation for the purchase of drones," the Liberovs note.


Among the photos presented as part of the "Contact Line" are "Shell Cemetery in Kharkiv", "Battle of Bakhmut", "Winter at the Front. Serebryansky Forest, 30 Hours at Zero, The Left Bank of the Kherson Region, Da Vinci's Last Stand, and other war series. The second block of the exhibition will show the reality of the civilian population with images from Mariinka, Bakhmut, Soledar, Kherson, Lysychansk, Bucha, Mykolaiv and other Ukrainian cities affected by the Russian invasion.


The Liberovs' works have been published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Independent and other well-known international media, and TIME magazine included their photos in the list of the 100 best photos of 2022 and 2023.


The "Contact Line" exhibition will be open in Pavilion 4 at VDNKh from April 4 to 21, 2024.


You will be able to see the exhibition by making a donation of UAH 100 or more to the collection. You can also purchase any work if you wish. The funds raised during the exhibition will be used to purchase 1000 fpv drones for the military.
