Riot Police Ukraine by Roland Imi

"I have been embarking on a project of carefully selecting, re-purposing and transforming existing images with the object of creating totally new images out of the originals.   The new image represents what I would have visualised as if I had been at the scene of the original picture.

The original strong image by Maxim Dondyuk (seen at the Red Cross museum in Geneva) caught my eye as the basis of derivative work.  In creating the derivative I try my best to keep to the spirit of the original but create a new outlook as if seen through my eyes.

One must be careful in creating derivatives as it treads a fine line on copyright.  In this case permission was kindly given by Mr. Dondyuk".
