The Beauty of Ukraine
Exceptional landscape photography: modern, young and reduced to the essentials.
A declaration of love by the award-winning Ukrainian photographer Yevhen Samuchenko to his homeland.
The view from above reveals the dimensions of Ukraine as one of the largest European countries. An aesthetic masterpiece of shapes and colours. Ukrainian photographer Yevhen Samuchenko, born in Odessa, has won awards worldwide for his impressive travel photography and his artful aerials - because he captures the fragile beauty of our planet in poetic images. Also that of his homeland, which has abruptly moved into the centre of international attention and seems more fragile than ever. The Beauty of Ukraine is a declaration of love to the landscapes of Ukraine and at the same time an aesthetic delight. Yevhen Samuchenko shows us the Lemurian Lake from the air, for example, whose unusual pink colour makes it look like a work of land art. He captures a canyon near Kherson in such a way that it looks like a graphic in the lush green landscape. Poppy and lavender fields fascinate with their uncompromising colourfulness, winter landscapes with their monumental silence and reduction.
