Before//Now highlights four stories, told in photos documenting life before the war and now. The photos from the past are all taken by photographers and the photos from the present are captured on mobile phones. The photos narrate two vastly different lives: one of freedom and joy and one of devastation and survival. In each case, the artists’ daily lives have changed dramatically from creative pursuits to fighting the war, looking after lost children, producing anti-tank equipment, or supporting the Ukrainian army.
