Photographer's Note

In the forthcoming „Lviv Files” series I would like to show you some pictures from the city of Lviv.

Before the WW2, the city was the main point of South-East Poland. After the war the borders have been changed leaving Lviv in the Soviet Union's giant. In 1991 Soviet empire collapsed, Ukraine won independence and Lviv became the most important city of the Western Ukraine.

Having such a rich and complex history, Lviv has always been a borderland city. It was a friendly place open for people of different nationalities, religions and political views.

During the WW2, the Nazis started to devastate the place (1941-1944). Then, under the Soviets, communists tried to remove every signs of the Lviv’s multi-cultural past and create a new communist city. But – fortunately – they both succeed only to some limited extent. Today walking up and down the streets of Lviv you can still meet a lot of that old, pre-war place. And it is my modest intention to deliver you a small part of that charming place.

The first file is a sunset city-center shot. Note the street paved with cobble-stones which is a „trademark” for Lviv.
