20/12/2022 Artjem

Artjem, who recently turned seventeen, arrived in Montreal in the summer of 2022. He is staying with his grandmother and aunt while waiting for the arrival of his mother and siblings. I met him just for a few minutes as Artjem was not keen on being photographed. I managed to make him laugh a bit and that was a precious moment. His grandmother tells me that the war in Ukraine has left her grandson with a deep psychological wound. I look through the viewfinder of my camera and I see a young and fragile boy who I hope will get through the darkness of today.
