Fotografiska For Life special exhibition

The future of Belarus with the power of women

Hero Image for The future of Belarus with the power of women

Fotografiska For Life is an essential part of who we are. Raising and responding immediately to issues that are important to society, often inconvenient but necessary, is largely the reason for our existence.

Fotografiska For Life’s special exhibition “The Future of Belarus with the Power of Women” is a collaboration with SHKLO, a platform of Belarusian photographers and visual artists, and is part of a global series of events highlighting Belarus in the Baltics, the Nordic countries, Central and Southern Europe, the United States and other countries around the world.

What is this exhibition about?

The exhibition “The Future of Belarus with the Power of Women” is a documentary insight into the peaceful protests of Belarusian women against injustice. Captured by four local women photographers, Darya Burakina, Iryna Arakhouskaya, Nadia Buzhan and Volha Shukaila, the protests bring viewers honest, painful, uncomfortable but also extraordinarily human stories of Belarusian women who, despite the efforts of the local authorities and the threat of violence, have not given up dreaming of a better country.

In December 2020, the Belarusian Democratic Opposition was awarded the Sakharov Prize for Freedom of Thought, a prize awarded by the European Parliament to people and organisations fighting for human rights. It is the European Union’s highest recognition for human rights defenders.

The multilingual, ticket-free exhibition is open at Tallinn Airport and in the virtual gallery. The exhibition is dedicated to all people who, despite the risk of violence, are willing and courageous enough to speak out, as well as to photojournalists who continue to expose stories of social importance, risking their lives and health in the process.

The stories behind the photos can be enjoyed in four languages: EST / ENG / BEL / RUS.
