Ukraine Through the Lens

News & Events

No one could have foreseen in November 2013, that a group of young peaceful protesters in Kiev could spark the flame that led to the downfall of a corrupt government.

American ex-pat, Kirsten Maher, took these photos during her time in Kiev. Through her lens, she has captured the beauty in the face of fear, the horror that people felt, but also the innocent charm and unique landscape that make Ukraine what it is.
The director of IIHS, Aromar Revi, will speak at the Balaton Group Meeting 2014 via video link on 'The struggle for a global urban sustainability goal, its relevance and linkages to concrete local action at city level' on 14 September at 9:35 AM (UTC+01:00).
