I found a cool thing in my mailbox : Niels Ackermann’s new book, L’Ange blanc (White Angel). You should try it.

Four clicks for a clic-clac

Did you remember Niels Ackermann excellent Ukrainian photoproject ?

It was a huge success, and now you can help it get some more visibility in Swiss media.

It won’t take you more than 5 seconds to help promote it, by clicking on this link at TagesAnzeiger, click the little circle near Niels Ackermann and look for the “Abstimmen” button box and click it too.

Then repeat the operation at 24heures.ch (”Voter”).

You can also look at the other artists works, but honestly, they’re not as good.

Thank you !

Do you want a different take on Ukraine and Chernobyl’s meltdown? You can contribute to Niels Ackermann’s long term photographic project about the youth of Slavutych, a beautiful book and exposition full of wonderful pictures: Chernobyl’s Children Grew Up.

«Welcome to the city of teenagers!»

Let’s discover a different story about Ukraine and about Chernobyl! Let me show you the youth of Slavutych, Ukraine’s youngest city: the town built by Soviet authorities after the nuclear disaster to keep a workforce close to the power plant.

In this city lost in the middle of a forest I met Yulia and her friends. During the three years of my project, they allowed me to photograph very intimately their transformation from teenagers into adults. The unexpected children of the disaster are now building their future in country torn by war and economic crisis, but at the same time filled with opportunities.

Next year the world will commemorate the 30th anniversary of the worst nuclear accident it ever saw. Media will offer the usual stories of death, cancer and desolation.

With this project we can tell another story: instead of looking in the past with anxiety, focusing on the power of young generation.

International brigades in Ukraina. The anti-russian feeling is so strong in most western media (including fiction like tv shows of movies), I think the blowback will be very violent. Today Switzerland stupidly banned Russian Air Forces to its big air show in Payerne instead of buying cheap Migs and Sukhoi to replace its decaying Tigers

La Souris Déglinguée, Dans le ciel de l’URSS.

Because they flew over USSR

Inside a civilian plane from South Korea

237 passengers, stewards, pilots and stewardesses

Were executed high in the sky

In the sky of the evil empire

In the USSR sky

Nevertheless, I wouldn’t be oversurprised to learn in a few days that Ukrainian nationalists could be behind this crime, like in Odessa with the burning of the Trade union building.
