Stefano Stranges: The Two Faces of the Rebellion

Stefano Stranges: The Two Faces of the Rebellion
International Photography Grant 2019

Ukraine, 2014. A country divided by internal tensions between those who look up to Europe and those who still feel a strong legacy (and attraction) to the neighboring former Soviet power, a country subject to international political pressure and torn in the east by a war more and more painful. In this alternate sequence of photos, we highlight the unexpected parallels between the movements of the militants of the Right Sektor, who train in a secret camp on the outskirts of the capital, and the dancers who animate the night shows in the most popular gay clubs in Kiev. Two sides which are so different – but which also could appear so similar, having seen a strong patriotism uniting them – Ukraine today.
