I started shooting this photo series in the fall of 2021 in Kyiv and the Kyiv region. I wanted to connect my contemporaries with portraits created by painters of past centuries. But since February 24, 2022, its meaning has changed: “Be in touch” now sounds like a request and like a prayer. All my heroines survived! Valeria was able to leave the occupation of the Bucha region for Poland, Yasya for England, Anna for Germany, Julia and Alexandra for Kyiv. The main thing is, wherever they are, each of them is boundlessly connected with Ukraine. And I can hear their voice!
