 The Donbass a huge coal and industrial area in the east of Ukraine , is one of the major metropolitan areas in Eastern Europe.
You will find Donbass  expressive black and white photographs that have emerged 1994-2010. Then, people and landscapes, still lifes and houses from the Ukrainian Donbass regions Luhansk to see and Donetsk. 
 One can see the tired faces of coal workers underground, an elderly man leaning exhausted on his pickax, a woman. Man stroking her dying or dead on his deathbed tenderly on the cheek. And you see smiling faces, two coal worker, play the guitar and sing along and the endless Ukrainian countryside, the ridged and shaped by coal mining was. 
People and landscapes come to life here.

After the collapse of the Soviet Union, it became necessary in the newly independent Ukraine to replace old Soviet passports with the new Ukrainian ones. There was a rush to accomplish this in the shortest possible time. All Ukrainians had to get a new passport within a year. In 1994, the social services of Luhansk, a town in southeast of Ukraine, started offering photographers a job of shooting passport photos in homes of the elderly and ill citizens, who could not pay a photographer on their own. I was one of the photographers commissioned by the social services to go door to door during this national passportisation campaign.
