INSTAGRAMMING KIEV

I spent 16 hours a day wandering around several square blocks in pursuit of a solitary goal, trying to visually translate the resolve evident all around me. After last week’s actions, in which I saw dozens of protesters armed with nothing more than clubs and flimsy metal shields shot by police snipers, it’s small comfort that those deaths appear, for now, not to be in vain.
