REVIEW EXTRACTS

“Denil’s use of overtly cinematic staging in this project is definitely an artistic risk, but one that pays off handsomely in the ways it opens up the subtle psychology of Ukrainian people. Let Us Not Fall Asleep While Walking is a layered study of protest and its real human consequences, one that takes the specific circumstances of the Euromaidan situation and broadens and stylizes its outcomes, lessons, and meanings. The result is a memorably excellent body of work and photobook, one that seems to get more vivid and touching with each reading.”
Loring Knoblauch, August 7, 2019 (pdf)

“With the book “LET US NOT FALL ASLEEP WHILE WALKING” David Denil shows himself not only to be a clever image maker, but also an erudite narrator and an excellent researcher and analyst. The book meanders from a humane documentary of the internal fragmentation within the hybrid state of Ukraine, to a commentary on unpunished attacks on activists and an unconcealed criticism of frozen research, but there is also room for hopeful stories of helping hands. This work expresses in a unique, moving way the experience of a disruptive policy and a human conflict, without betraying its complexity.”
