I am very proud to see my work  from the frontline of the war in Ukraine get recognized as a finalist in Lensculture's Exposure Awards. Its a good feeling to see it along side such strong work done by our colleagues.

The fight in Avdiivka has recently escalated and the city faces a massive humanitarian challenge as I write this. It makes the nod from Lens culture bitter sweet knowing that the guys are engaged in heavy fighting and the people of the city are suffering while I write this. 

I'm looking forward to returning to Avdiivka in order to  continue and expand on this story in the next few weeks.
