“Not Like Us”
From her teenage years, Lisa Bukreyeva was captivated by the art of photography, driven by the desire to document and observe the world around her. Her series, “Not Like Us“, delves into the process of growing up and the time it takes to navigate the turbulent waters of adolescence. This collection of photographs traces the artist’s personal journey, showcasing her ability to connect her own experiences with those of others, and to explore the complex tapestry of identities that define her generation and the ones that follow.
Bukreyeva’s work is characterized by its intimacy, revealing vulnerability, strength, and her innermost thoughts and feelings. Through her camera, she seeks to make sense of her surroundings and find her place within them. The resulting series is a visual testament to the universal struggle of self-discovery and the search for belonging during the formative years of adolescence.

As she navigates her own place in the world, her work encourages others to contemplate their own experiences and the ways in which they connect with those around them.

Eyeshot Magazine #10 | Open Call Edition
This is the tenth issue of Eyeshot Magazine always in limited edition of 500 copies, showcasing the thoughtful and creative photographs of the 70 talented photographers who have been selected as the winners, jurors’ picks and finalists of the Eyeshot Open Call 2022. The artworks were chosen from over 6000 photographssubmitted from more than 100 different countries, making this a truly global showcase of street and documentary photography.
As a child, Lisa Bukreyeva dreamed of possessing a unique superpower – the ability to capture images by simply blinking their eyes. Although this superpower remained a fantasy, the photographer eventually found an alternative means to achieve their goal – purchasing a camera.
For almost two years, Lisa Bukreyeva has been dedicated to a deeply personal project that reflects their perception of the place where they were born. Their work extends beyond the city of Kyiv, as they recognize that one’s identity is shaped not only by their immediate surroundings but also by the country as a whole. The artist’s connection to this project has only grown stronger over time, particularly due to the potential for the destruction of many of the places depicted in the series. Now, the project serves not only as a visual narrative, but also as a vital link to the artist’s past and cherished memories.
The 2022 Eyeshot Open Call saw the submission of over 6.000 photographs by incredibly talented photographers from over 100 different countries. With the participation on an extraordinary jury composed of Marco Savarese, founder and editor-in-chief of Eyeshot, Magnum photographers such as Trent Parke and Emin Özmen, leading representatives of street and documentary photography scene – Vineet Vohra, Siegfried Hansen, Koci Hernandez , Mark Abramson and Isadora Kosofsky – and winners of the World Press Photo Award – Narelle Autio and Kitra Cahana – these artworks were selected for their visual storytelling, creativity, and style in conveying their unique observations of contemporary reality.
Street and documentary photography feel the urgency to elevate the streets of the world into theaters without requiring humans to perform. In front of each of these images, you can mirror yourself. Or you can also just look at them.
