Imperial War Museum North presents Ukraine: Photographs from the Frontline, an exhibition of work from photojournalist Anastasia Taylor-Lind.

While the invasion of Ukraine by Russia is now a regular occurrence in Western news and a crippling reminder of the horrors of war, the conflict has been simmering in the background since the annexation of Crimea in 2014. For the past eight years, Anastasia Taylor-Lind has been consistently documenting the reality of conflict, protest and their effect on the lives of ordinary people living in Ukraine. The show also includes input from the artist’s friend and long-term collaborator, Ukrainian journalist Alisa Sopova, whose words can be found in the accompanying wall text, alongside quotes from Taylor-Lind’s models on the realities of war.

This powerful exhibition is split into three sections. The first focuses on the 2014 protests in Kyiv, the second documents the ongoing conflict for individuals living in eastern Ukraine and the last section concentrates on the current Russian invasion. Ukraine: Photographs from the Frontline is a chance to see beyond the headlines and come closer to the reality of conflict from a more human perspective.
