I have visited Kiev, the East European city, several times and explored it as a novice outsider. As a street photographer I had no predefined thoughts in mind but in subconscious it could be my feelings I was capturing.
I have a practice to walk with my camera on an unknown pathway whenever I visit a new place and Kiev was not an exception. I explored people, their associated history of war and religious feelings, daily life of them, their joy, and hope. To capture my explorations in frames, consciously or unconsciouslyI used light, color, shade which portrayed the signature of Kiev from the root. Eventually this brings out the soul of this city.
