The eighth edition of the festival was scheduled to take place in Odesa from May 19 to 22, 2022. Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine, however, changed everything. On February 24, 2022, an all-out war began in Ukraine. From now on, Kateryna Radchenko, director and curator of Odesa Photo Days and the festival team are working to relay the situation in Ukraine throughout the world and to support documentary photographers and artist-photographers affected by the war.
