Photographs of Poles in Ukraine - online exhibition


Poles in Ukraine: Photo exhibition conveying history and culture
One look is sometimes worth more than a thousand words. This universal law applies to many areas of life, and manifests itself particularly strongly in photography. As if transporting us in time and space, it can show other worlds, other realities. And what if these other realities concern a nation close to us, which is the Poles in Ukraine? Let us consider this thought while immersing ourselves in the fascinating world of the photographic exhibition just entitled "Poles in Ukraine".

Transitions and interpenetration: Two peoples, one history

In the first part of the exhibition, we will immerse ourselves in history - distant, but undoubtedly influencing the face of the world today. The old, black-and-white photographs will show us Poles who marked their place on Ukrainian soil. These will be stories of hardship, but also of perseverance and determination. In these photographs, we will see both everyday existence and moments of celebration.

Reflecting the present: The interplay of cultures

Then we move to the present. The pictures show the contemporary face of the Polish community in Ukraine, its customs, traditions and way of life. These are much more colourful frames, full of life and movement, but not without a certain nostalgia. Here, too, we can see the intermingling of cultures, the influence the Poles have had on the Ukrainian reality, but also how Ukraine has influenced them.

Future: Young Poles in Ukraine

The last part of the exhibition is dedicated to the future, namely the young Poles in Ukraine. They are the future, they are the ones who will continue the legacy of previous generations. Their faces, full of optimism, determination, but also anxiety, conclude our photographic journey.

Such is the power of photography - it is able to convey emotions, show small details that may escape the naked eye. The exhibition "Poles in Ukraine" is the story of a nation that, despite many adversities, has preserved its identity, influenced the face of another culture and allowed traditions to permeate one another. This unique exhibition proves that photography is not only an art, but also a tool to convey history and culture. We invite you to explore it and experience this unforgettable journey through time and space.
