With the ongoing tension between Ukraine and Russia, I wanted to display the strength demonstrated by the Ukrainian people. The hardships, strain, and adversities these people have had to endure recently is heartbreaking to witness. However, the determination the Ukrainians have displayed is incredibly inspirational. To bring these emotions to life, I tried my best to convey their strength, pain, and resilience into my portrait.

By using a printer at home, I pressed my face against the scanner and scanned my face. I then imported the photos to a computer.

I decided not to digitally edit this photo with any software. I wanted the portrait to be seen in its original and raw form. I don't want to show a perfect and flawless image. I want to show the truth.
