Brendan Sheridan’s Life In Ukraine

Brendan Sheridan captures the Ukraine post EuroMaidan protests in 2014, which saw the removal of President Viktor Yanukovych from power and the start of a war in the east.

The Ukrainian government’s decision to suspend the signing of an association agreement with the European Union sparked a wave of demonstrations and civil unrest. The decision meant choosing closer ties to Russia and the Eurasian Economic Union. As the protests widened, calling for the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovych the demonstrations became fuelled by the perception of government corruption, abuse of power and violations of human rights in Ukraine. Brendan Sheridan’s images capture the every day life in Ukraine, a subtle reminder of the protests and issues that are still ongoing, Sheridan’s work is a description of sense of place, a personal path through Ukraine and a series full of suggestion and description.
