Event Details:

 “Crimes of Peace,”
a photographic presentation of life in Ukraine during the current war,
Trinity Church, 131 W. Emerson St., Melrose, MA,
on Sun., Nov. 12, 4:00-5:30 pm.
There is no charge for admission, and all are welcome.

        Noted professional photographer Patrick Patterson, of New Hampshire, made four
extended trips to Ukraine, spending almost a year there after the war began. He witnessed
and recorded the immediate  devastation, as well as the ferocious shock to ordinary families from the violence of the invading Russian forces.
         Listening to people’s needs and their stories earned Patterson their trust, especially
when on subsequent trips he tried to bring them the things they most needed—
like medicines, tools, or special clothing or equipment. Most important, however, was
the reassurance that someone actually cared about them.
        That trust made it possible for Patterson to make thousands of photographs, not of battle
scenes but of people working through their losses and regaining hope and normality in their
daily lives.
It also produced a host of stories, which Patterson is happy to share with audiences.
         This is one of a series of presentations that Patterson is making across New England.
He — and his photographs and stories — have already attracted considerable press and other 
media coverage. www.williampatrickphotography.com

Work is a reflection of how photography can influence change through photographic
narratives and the importance of giving voice to those who are not heard

        In offering this presentation to the local and wider community, Trinity Church Melrose is
working in cooperation with the Ukrainian Cultural Center of New England
and the Ukrainian Congress Committee of America.

There is no charge for admission and all are welcome.
There will be an opportunity for those who wish to contribute to
RAZOM (Together for Ukraine)
to provide humanitarian aid to Ukrainian war victims.
