A pop-up exhibition of work from Holy Water by Christopher Nunn opens this week.
Images are taken from Holy Water – an extract from Christopher’s ongoing work in Ukraine which has been thrust suddenly and violently into our global consciousness.
Media coverage has focused on the ongoing armed conflict and political chaos that has marred the country in recent years.
In Holy Water Christopher Nunn takes a quieter look at the periphery of these events.
His collection of photographs explore everyday life, ordinary domestic moments and chance meetings against a backdrop of political turmoil and instability.
Themes of escapism, alcohol, friendships and religious iconography permeate the photographs.

The exhibition opening is from 7pm to 10pm on Wednesday, May 10, at the Calvert 22 Foundation.
For the first time since being wounded during the shelling of Avdiivka in February, Christopher will be talking with Lola Paprocka about his work.
The talk will be followed by a Q&A. RSVP via Facebook: Talk – Christopher Nunn: Holy Water
