YEGAN MAZANDARANI flew to Donetsk in the Dombass region of Ukraine in 2016, two years after the events that led to the separation of the region from the main land. There he met with the PARIAHS, people from various parts of the world who joined the rebel forces to give their support to what they feel is a fight for freedom.
Their point of view is not shared by everyone. Many see in their tolerated presence a sign of manipulation by the pro-russian rebels and possibly also by Moscow.
But whether this is the case or not, the fact remains that these "PARIAHS" represent a part of the human consciousness which manifests itself in all conflicts throuh history.
Yegan Mazandarani focused his camera and shot some of the most beautiful pictures, in black and white, capturing the tensions, conflicts and hopes as well as the difficulties and joys of the day to day life of this unusual group of voluntarily uprooted people, somewhat lost in a foeign conflict they want to make theirs.
The result is a stunning collection of photograhs and a beautifully crafted art-book presenting photos and texts. After the success of the book in Paris, L'Atelier is proud to present the English/Russian version in Berlin.
