This group of Ukrainian photographers, also called the 4 in 1, joined their efforts through active memberships in the Ukrainian Photographic Alternative in 2011. The group has exhibited work at the Diplomat gallery in Philadelphia, P.A. In November 2012, their second big project, “the Flow,” took place at the Art Center Ya Gallery, Kiev, Ukraine. The Flow project was accompanied by the book of the same name being published in Ukraine. The Flow exhibit represents the artists’ view on photography as well as on subjective topics such as beauty and perception of the environment. Its deliberate lack of defined theme aims to convey the idea of unlimited seeing; being in the state of flow, where plenty of possibilities exist for interpreting and understanding the visible. “Without any final goal and linkage to certain context, to shot and to layer the photos on each other as empty baskets in the supermarket, 200 items.”

Some works in this exhibit may contain mature content.
