Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Russia, Ukraine, Arts & Culture, Health, Photography, RuNet Echo

Ukrainian photographer Maxim Dondyuk (@dondyuk [1]) is documenting the TB epidemic in Ukraine: “Each day 30 people die. Each year takes more than 10,000 lives.” Dondyuk's powerful, heartbreaking photographs of TB patients can be viewed online on his Tumblr blog [2] [ru], his website [3], and on Lightstalkers.com [4] [en]. On Sep. 15, an exhibition of Dondyuk's work opens in Moscow [5] [ru] at the Andrei Sakharov Museum and Public Center.
