9" x 6", 84 pages, Full color
In 2017 Nick Jackson spent a year in Kyiv, the capital of Ukraine on a Fulbright Grant. His visit granted him insight into a very unstable moment in a country wounded by corruption and the brutality of government, as he bore witness to the shift in sociopolitical systems that are still ongoing after the EuroMaidan Revolution. Although the end result of this research will be an upcoming Graphic Novel, Nick had enough material to share with us snippets of his time in Kyiv in the form of photography, personal diary entries, sketches, and human stories from the people he met while abroad. A wonderfully humane glimpse into the lives of a people oft forgotten by our unforgiving news cycle. M.C.
