Photographer Anna Mia Davidson’s exhibit “Ukraine: Carpathian Mountain Villages” showcases photographs taken in 2004 and with special permission from Ukraine’s Ministry of Cultural Affairs. Davidson traveled to Lviv Oblast, Ivano Frankivsk Oblast, Chernivtsi Oblast and the villages of Ternivtsi, Yaremche, Kosiv and other remote villages scattered in the Carpathian highlands. Davidson traveled throughout the region photographing the mountain people and ways of life at risk of being lost, such as wood carvers, subsistence farmers, wool rug maker and church caretakers, bearing witness and documenting history with each photograph made.
The exhibit is currently on display at the Renton History Museum, 235 Mill Avenue S in Renton, through September 16, 2022.
