With the beginning of Russia's war against Ukraine, a cohort of Fulbright photographers, both Ukrainian and American, found themselves at the epicenter of momentous events. They were equipped with their ultimate weapons, their cameras. They managed to capture the tragic and heroic, the devastating and hopeful moments of present life in Ukraine. The exhibit is sponsored by Fulbright Ukraine and the Fulbright Association Minnesota Chapter.
