Oleksii Furman. Life after Injury
"Life after Injury" is a photography project about young Ukrainian soldiers who were wounded during the ongoing war with Russia-backed rebels and Russian regular army in the Donbass region. Since May 2014, this conflict has taken over nine thousand lives. More than three thousand Ukrainian soldiers were killed, almost eleven thousand were injured. Resembling the Afghanistan war veterans thirty years ago, they face a lack of physical and psychological rehabilitation programs. This project concentrates on their adaptation to peaceful life when they come home, a story that gets little coverage in media outlets and existing photography projects. At home they face an important challenge. They have to reintegrate into society, as now they are different people with painful memories impossible to forget. They have to over­come many difficulties and seek possibilities themselves or with support from close rela­tives, friends, volunteers and psychologists. This exhibition was presented in our library in April 19.
'Life after Injury" photography project has received Grand Prize of the IAFOR Documen­tary Photography Award and Grand Prize of the International Photo Exhibition of the *Day* newspaper.
