The “Values” project was inspired by my personal experiences related to current situation in Ukraine. I would like to draw attention to the problems of our common world througt the humanitarian crisis, looking for the intangible value of human life. Observing the way in which lands with great cultural heritage are devastated and children lose their childhood, I tell a story about the power of the value of life, the perfection of each individual existence, individuality and the richness of the human soul. From the enemy’s point of view, they are only mass, something useless and worthless. What the present generations are going through, their war traumas will turn potential joy and love into “stones” in the future.
