The photographs were taken by Andrej Ljankevitsch and Julia Daraschkevitsch, journalists from the Belarusian oppositional weekly paper Nascha Niva, and the photographer Jakub Dospiva from the Czech Press Agency. Diary excerpts written by Darja Kostenko, a journalist in Minsk and eyewitness of the riots, are also on display.
