This series is created in Kiev Botanic Garden in May 2014. Photographs reflect the internal state of the author after the tragic events occurred in Ukraine during the winter and spring of 2014. This is an attempt to return for a moment to normal life, a desire to see the light and renewal after a hard winter, a kind of therapy. But disquieting images are lurking beyond an intricate pattern of plants, rays and drops of water.

Gera Artemova was born and based in Kyiv, Ukraine. Member of UPHA (Ukrainian Photographic Alternative) since 2013.
