The Ukrainian Museum exhibits the last photographs taken by a slain Ukrainian war correspondent
Maks Levin: In Defense of Truth and Freedom.

NEW YORK, NY.- The Ukrainian Museum presents its new exhibition, Maks Levin: In Defense of Truth and Freedom, a selection of photographs by the slain Ukrainian journalist Maks Levin. The exhibition comprises 25 prints from among Levin's last pictures documenting the war that Russia continues to wage on Ukrainian soil. The war photographer's body was found outside of Kyiv, Ukraine, on April 1, 2022. Unarmed and wearing a press jacket according to reports, it's believed that Levin was tortured before being fatally shot twice with small-arms fire by Russian soldiers. His murder is regarded a war crime. In Defense of Truth and Freedom is now open to the public and will be on display through September 18, 2022.

Maksim (Maks) Yevhenovych Levin, 40, a father of four, had been working as a photojournalist since 2006. In 2014 he began photographing the war in eastern Ukraine. He continued on this mission until his untimely death in the conflict escalated by Russia in February 2022. Levin actively advocated for improving safety protocols for Ukrainian journalists. In addition to his photojournalism work, Maks developed documentary projects about autistic children and single fathers.

The Ukrainian Museum previously featured the work of Maks Levin in its 2014 exhibition Heroes for Freedom, an homage to those who lost their lives in the proxy war instigated by Russia in eastern Ukraine that year. Mounted in the current display are several of Levin's prints from the earlier show, shedding light on the long-term confrontation in eastern Ukraine that this year turned into a full-scale, country-wide offensive by Russia.

The exhibition also includes Maks Levin's bio and a brief historical survey of the war.
