On view from October 6 to November 10, 2023, the exhibition features photographs taken by Evgeniy Maloletka and Mstyslav Chernov in Mariupol in 2022, when they were the only Ukrainian journalists with international connections reporting from Mariupol. The Ukrainian Associated Press journalists were awarded a 2023 Pulitzer Prize for public service. Evgeniy Maloletka received a second Pulitzer for breaking news photography.
