Boutographies supports Ukrainian photography.

In 2016, the Boutographies worked in partnership with the very young Odessa PhotoDays festival. This resulted in an evening reserved for the screening of the work of eleven promising Ukrainian photographers, in the auditorium of La Panacée, and an exchange with the festival team, live from Odessa.

In the same year, we exhibited Marek M. Berezowski's series on the city of Mariupol, also at La Panacée. Berezowski's series on the city of Mariupol, also at La Panacée. In all these works, we could feel the weight of the perpetual threat of the Russian state but also the vigour of the fight for freedom and democracy, particularly among the youth.

Today, we are in regular contact with Kateryna Radchenko, director of the Odessa festival and one of the main actors of contemporary photography in Ukraine.

We have agreed with her and with other events in Europe to give visibility to what is being done by Ukrainian photographers, both in theatres of war and in the daily lives of their fellow citizens today.
