Since the full-scale war in Ukraine began, the number of Ukrainians living in Germany has risen rapidly. In August 2022, 976,000 people with Ukrainian citizenship were living in Germany, which is almost seven times more than at the end of February. They live in refugee accommodation, monasteries, youth hostels, in shared flats, and in private apartments. The portrait series is intended to give Ukrainian refugees in Germany a face. The photographer’s goal is for her work to contribute to integration and inclusion. The focus is on raising awareness of the social and societal challenges of refugees who, facing transitional challenges, identity issues and loss, are trying to build a new life in Germany. It concerns people who were forced to leave their home country because of war and are now coming to terms with a new beginning.
