{ Dmytro Kupriyan

Born 24th of september 1982 in Kyiv.
Worked as a photojournalist at UIIAN.
I start to work on the topic of tortures and for three years i had been doing a project about tortures in ukrainian police (project "TORTURED") then i shift to topic of violence in wide meaning of it making a projects about war in Ukraine (projects "Fragments of War", "Banality of Agression" and "WHEN THE WAR IS OVER") and later as a conclusion i moved to the topic of dialog in society as a reconciliation making a video about necessarines of Dialog. I try to show that the only way to solve the problem and misunderstanding in societies is the dialog in all meaning of it: verbal, subverbal, physical, etc.
Also I'm interesting in ukrainian historical shipping and sailing on the chaika (which is a name of an old national Ukrainian boat) SPAS, built in 2007 by a group of national enthusiasts. I went on a couple of trips with the crew, through Ukraine and to Georgia, and made a set of photographs about that.
Then I spent a year in army as officer and make a pictures during the Ukrainian-Russia conflict in Donbass.
