My name is Nikolas Anatsky. I am a member of the National Army of Ukraine. If you ask me to outline the major events of the last three years of my life I would name only one word. It is “War”. I never thought that I would utter this word with such pain and suffering. The War came to my house and destroyed our world. I had to leave my home and start a new life.
I have spent almost 3 years in the flashpoint areas of the East Ukraine. I did my job and tried to take photos at moments of sadness or inspiration. And I have realized that photography is something more than a color image to me. Now I’m thinking about getting a professional level in this area and maybe open a photo studio in the future.
All I want is to start a new life and go to the East as a photo reporter to show how shouldn’t be in the modern European country in XXI century.
