The Power of Collective Energy

This project is the result of the work which lasted for eight years. A phenomenon of collective energy was being investigated, interaction between the individual and collective, social connections.

Fifty black and white photographs, each three meters wide, are presented in the project. Each panorama depicts various collectives – factory workers, parishioners, stadium builders, presidential regiment, military pilots, etc.
They were shooting all over Ukraine. The aim was to show how powerful a collective might be.

  1. To head off the comments from some of our American friends who bristle at the mention of anything ‘collective’, I’d just add that every workplace and gathering is collective. We all work together to make society function, even though the benefits only go to a few. These photos show the spirit of cooperation that process can make possible.

  2. No, I just was wondering why all those people were gathering to be “shot”. What did they do wrong that they were going to shoot them?
