Process Belarus 2020
The photographs in the project I created as a citizen.
Taking pictures on the streets of Minsk in June-November 2020, helped to get rid of fear, taught courage. Courage: to be subjective and openly take sides, because when you are “hunted” like a wild animal by people in black- the ethical code of a journalist can wait until peacetime. Going out with a camera and knowing that you can be arrested much earlier than peaceful protesters, because you do not just take photographs, but document crimes against unarmed people.
