16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest People
A girl with a poster on a KyivPride, Ukraine

"Love has no limits - only people do" - that's what the sign on the poster says. I don't know the girl I captured, but she was so nice and totally okay with me taking a photo of her - that was so surprising for me. The photo was taken on a KyivPride 2018 - the march for equality in Ukraine. That was my first time seeing so many people of LGBTQ+ community at the same place, also there were a lot of people that are not a part of LGBTQ+ community, but they are fighting for equal rights for everybody. I loved it! And I was happy to be able to capture all those emotions and smiling faces of strong, brave and beautiful people.
