To coincide with NFT.NYC, Superchief Gallery has partnered with Vault by CNN to present “War Notes,” an NFT collection release and gallery pop-up show by photographer Cheney Orr. The collection—a project of memories in the making, co-created with Ukrainian citizens during wartime—will be released on Thursday, June 23 and available to purchase at vault.cnn.com. Superchief will be donating 100% of profits from the collection to fund humanitarian aid for Ukrainians.

Superchief will also be hosting a physical gallery pop-up exhibition to premiere the full scope of work Cheney produced while in Ukraine on the same day (Thursday, June 23) from 5-7pm at its Manhattan location at 56 E 11th St.

“War Notes” chronicles Cheney Orr’s travels over six weeks across Ukraine collecting a total of 53 portraits and interviews. Per participant, a single Fuji FP-100c polaroid was made. Orr then asked each participant to write their memories, experiences, thoughts, and emotions on a separate unexposed blank polaroid. Alongside these pieces, he collected audio, digital photographs, instax polaroids and 35mm black and white images.

Each of the 53 portraits are paired with audio recordings of participant’s voices and/or on-location ambient sounds.

The polaroid portraits and written stories were collected in a single photo album the artist carried with him throughout his experience. As a special release, Cheney Orr replicated this photo album as a limited-edition ‘zine so the photos can be shared in a way that mimics the artist's process when the project was constructed.
