On June 12th, Lviv’s picturesque Italian mansion welcomed dignitaries for the opening of an exhibition designed to bring the pleasures of good photography to those who are visually impaired. The exhibition, which was supported by Ukrainian Parliamentary speaker Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s “Open Ukraine” foundation, featured specially created physical representations of photographic portraits by the photographer Yuriy Bilak. Entitled “Touch and See”, each image in the exhibition also featured narration from Ukrainian stars including Kateryna Yushchenko, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Olga Gerasimuk, Bogdan Benuk, Nina Matvienko and Oleh Skrypka. Following its Lviv debut this imaginative exhibition will now go in show in Chernigiv, Donetsk, Kharkiv and Ivano-Frankivsk.
