Fine art and fashion director and photographer Sam Yari recently held an exhibition of Pravda photography in Kyiv, Ukraine. The ‘No to War’ photography exhibition and project in Germany in which Ukrainian supermodels will be involved. The images will be displayed in Paris, France, in an exhibition before they are sold as non-fungible tokens (NFT).
The funds raised from the NFT (also an NFT collection that was in NFT trends for a couple of weeks) and images sale will be used to aid the war victims of Ukraine. Sam Yari admits to living with the Ukrainian people for a long time, and they are among the calm and noble people. As the Russian–Ukrainian war broke out, Yari was close to the war, where he observed people locking themselves in their homes.
During his stay in Kyiv, he better understood the horrific and terrible consequences of war, and it has made him feel highly compelled to take real action. He has decided to conduct a photography exhibition involving Ukrainian supermodels in Paris, France, to deliver this vision.
The photographs will be taken in Germany and sold as Photography NFT. Through these campaigns, funds will be raised and used to assist the war victims of Ukraine. Yari has also decided to create a documentary film to document the entire process.
Yari is a dynamic and gifted photographer who has worked in the modeling, media, and fashion industries. His career has allowed him to travel to other nations on different continents, meet new people, and learn about various cultures. His interest in photography and art drove him to visit Kyiv, Ukraine, in late 2021 for some professional assignments.
Now that the situation in Ukraine has worsened as a result of Russia’s onslaught, Yari thinks he owes an ethical and moral obligation to the victims of conflict. The photographer-turned-entrepreneur has teamed up with high-profile influencers and celebrities throughout his career, and he intends to do the same with the No To War initiative.
