For Artem Skorokhodko, co-founder of Behind Blue Eyes, the resilience of the native kids amidst ruined locations spurred the initiative. ‘This power and drive felt virtually weird again in April 2022, so we started cracking our heads [about] the best way to encapsulate this emotion and share it with different individuals throughout Ukraine who may desperately want it. On the similar time, we wished to have fun and assist what we admired in these children a lot. The pictures experiment addressed each [aims].’

The ensuing pictures seize generally idyllic-seeming scenes, jarring when set towards the glimpses of devastation behind. The youngsters take photographs of flowers, of one another, of their possessions in disarray, ignoring the encircling chaos.

They spoke about issues that may usually be prevented in dialog.’

Provided that the youngest participant was seven years previous, and we [set] completely no limits on this inventive endeavour, my wager was that solely half of the cameras would make it via, whereas the remainder could be misplaced, broken, cracked open… I used to be unsuitable then and each single time [since].’
