Dreaming in Donetsk
Home isn’t necessarily always the place where it’s easiest to breathe. The fight for borders squeezes the air out as you loose something that could have been. But still, life goes on. Becoming the life you live. Dreaming of somewhere to breathe. Donetsk – the city that used to house a million people. In 2014 armed conflict broke out between the Ukrainian army and pro-Russia separatists. Since then, ceasefires have resulted in a decrease in fighting, yet without a lasting peace. Many had to leave their homes, fleeing from war and unemployment. Those who stayed had to adjust to the new military order that brought its own rules to their home. -Like birds in a cage, they live in isolation, but instead of seeds they are fed with promises from their leaders that better days will come.
