Michael Zajakowski This photograher is so in tune with what she or he is doing thet they recognize and can react to these small events that are so revelaing about life in war. The photo of the woman looking through her ceiling is one of my favorite photos of the year.
Just over 500 days ago on February 24th, Russia invaded Ukraine. That is 500 days of extreme human suffering, impacting every element of Ukrainian society. Thousands of civilians have been killed and wounded, and countless others, many who volunteered are living through daily bombardment and violence that in many instances amount to war crimes. Entire neighbourhoods and cities have been destroyed. This series of images show the emotions behind the human cost of this conflict. The sacrifice and bravery of people enduring the unimaginable.
