VASA Front Page Exhibitions presents the work of Italian photographer Ugo Panella.

The work on display emerges from his work for SOLETERRE, a non-profit organization in Milan that promotes projects supporting pediatric oncology, doctors and healthcare facilities (often dilapidated), in an attempt to improve hospital care and the prospects for successful therapies for victims of the largest nuclear accident to date, imitating many years later the Fukuschima power plant in March 2011

Ugo Panella says of his experience of photographing children in the Kiev, Ukraine hospital: "The impression is disheartening ... the crowded rooms, the peeling beds, the hygiene compromised by dilapidated and never renovated structures. Difficult to interpret and testify to everything from a photographic point of view without falling into the easy rhetoric of suffering. In the following days I become familiar with the environment and got to know the children and introduced myself to the parents. I explained to them the reason for my presence and the purpose of the work."
