Holy Water by Christopher Nunn

A pop-up exhibition of work from Holy Water by Christopher Nunn opens this week.

Village, Calvert 22 Foundation and the IPF are presenting the exhibition from Wednesday, May 10, to Sunday, May 14, in London.

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.
