EXHIBITION: Borderland – Ukraine 2022
February 24 @ 8:00 am - May 31 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0
Borderland – Ukraine 2022 is a series of images taken by award-winning documentary photographer Karen Cox. On February 24th 2022, Russia invaded Ukraine initiating a war in which thousands have lost their lives and millions have fled or are internally displaced. It is reported that almost 8 million Ukrainians have left the country as refugees.
As the war continues across Ukraine, families are being torn apart. These photographs offer an insight into the reality of displaced people crossing from Ukraine into Poland in the hope of finding safety. These images, from both sides of the border, were taken in April 2022 at the border crossing in Medyka.
Karen Cox is a freelance photographer who works both in Ireland and internationally. Her work spans documentary photography and photojournalism to reveal and record both known and untold narratives. Her photographs have appeared in publications worldwide including The New York Times, The Guardian, Rolling Stone among others and also feature in the Irish national papers. She continues to show her work in exhibitions globally.
