Faces of the Crimean Tatar Deportation 75 Years Later
On the morning of May 18, 1944, the Soviet government initiated a special operation in Crimea: the deportation of Crimean Tatars (Kirimli) to the Urals and Central Asia. Zarema Yaliboylu's photographs reveal this crime perpetrated by the Stalinist regime against the Kirimli through portraits and stories of ordinary people who survived the deportation and managed at last to return to Crimea, which was once again occupied by Russia in 2014.

Alexander Archipenko: selected works
Influenced by artists such as Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, Alexander Archipenko developed his own avant-garde sculptural style experimenting with convex/concave forms, volume/space transference, and inventing sculpto-painting. By 1920, Archipenko had become one of the most important sculptors of the era.
