I am Olena Shved, 45 years old, from Kyiv, Ukraine. My main field of activity for the last 20 years was medicine. I immersed myself into photography to prevent chronic stress from my work in surgery. Several years ago I have started my photography training in Kyiv photography school. A theme, I was always reflected on, is inner experience of person working in extremal medicine, where daily work is connected to human suffering, pain and death as well as risk and high responsibility. This experience pushed me to create a photoseries «Behind the Red Line», dedicated to those aspects of surgeons' work, which is usually hidden from human's eyes.
