Ukrainian woman won the prize/Fine Art Photography Awards 2024

Ukrainian photographer Olena Grom won the prestigious international Fine Art Photography Awards. Her photo project “Stolen Spring” won in two categories: “Professional Photographer of the Year” and “Professional Portrait”.

A series of works by the Ukrainian woman takes us back to the period of February-March 2022 – the first months of the invasion Russian Federation to Ukraine.

Photographer Olena Grom herself is from Donetsk. Before the full-scale invasion, she lived in Buchi and worked in Irpen. The photographer depicted the devastating consequences of the war for these cities in her project “Stolen Spring”.

In the spring, the occupation continued, people who survived this tragic period did not notice how spring passed, how chestnuts and lilies of the valley blossomed, and birds flew in. They were deprived not only of their homes, loved ones, jobs, health, but also part of their lives. Immigrants from Donbas and Crimea have a second tragic spring. A stolen spring is a stolen life. Each photo is a personal tragedy, but it is also a life-affirming story of a survivor, the hope that Ukraine will rise from the ruins, Olena Grom describes her photo project.

Elena Grom made a series of photographs in a historical dialogue with the images of the Polish photographer Michael Nash. In 1945-1946, he took pictures of post-war Warsaw, and used a decorative background to mask the ruins. Olena Grom also succeeded in this technique.
