WAR-TORN
2014-2015
  • These pictures were taken at the Main Military Clinical Hospital in Kiev. They are mostly Ukrainian servicemen, but some are members of volunteer battalions that offer the Army additional support. All were wounded in battles with pro-Russian separatists in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.Most people in Kiev feel safely removed from the fighting in the east. But the injuries being treated at the military hospital speak volumes about the severity of the fighting. Many of the men have lost arms and legs, and the more extreme cases can expect to remain hospitalized for a year. The series contains 50 portraits. This project was made as a help to wounded soldiers and charity auction raised about $400000 for their treatment and support.
