Based in Kyiv, Ukraine, Vic Bakin uses photography to celebrate the queer community around him.
After years and years of soviet forbiddance and suppression, and against the current conflict they fight against, the Ukrainian queer scene has sprouted from the underground, persevering in the face of true adversity. Bakin celebrates the unique voice of this community, who he sees as strong and beautiful, a new generation changing his country for the better.
