A so called "MemoryArt" object dedicated to Kyiv camera installed on the façade of the old Arsenal factory building No.7 has been unveiled in Kyiv, Ukraine exactly 3 months ago on August 19, 2022 on the World Photography day.

The art object was conceived and created by a team of Ivan Zotikov and Igor Lobortas.

The building No.7 of Arsenal factory in Kyiv was built in 1914-1915 and is also known as a Koval Workshop.

The opening ceremony was attended by dignitaries such as Serhiy Anzhiyak - a head of Department of Culture of the KSCA, Volodymy Taftai - a head of the State Space Agency of Ukraine and Oleg Melnyk, the director of the museum of the Arsenal Factory.

The author of the idea: Ivan Zotikov
Sponsors: Anton Sorokin, Ivan Zotikov, Anton Lapach, Oleksiy Baranov
Execution and manufacture by Lobortas Classic Jewelry House

Very happy to know that the past is always living.
And the present too, happily!
Many thanks for this share, Vlad. So, you were in Kiev in August...

Amitiés. Jacques.

Yes looks really good. A pity the old factory is not still running (even in these bad times) - Leica have reintroduced the M6 film camera and we badly need someone to produce a heritage 35mm rangefinder/lens package which is really affordable. Outside of the politics, Arsenal and KMZ would be possible candidates.
Remember - photography transcends politics :)
