The photographer and writer witnessed the Russian attack on Ukraine from its beginning until she left for Germany in early April 2022. During the day, she roamed the streets of Kyiv, documenting people’s daily lives in diary entries and photographs – deliberately refusing to use polarizing war language. »When I started this diary, I was convinced that I would only keep it for a few days. Experts suggest that the war may go on for years. Every day of this war is one too many« [SPIEGEL].
