Each day, thousands of people leave Lviv railway station by train to Poland. The exodus of humanity fleeing war in Ukraine has predominately been women, children and the elderly. All men aged 18-60 must remain in Ukraine to fight in the war against Russia. Lviv, Ukraine, 11 March 2022. Photo by John Stanmeyer / VII.

John Stanmeyer has been in Ukraine covering the war, focusing on the civilians displaced by Russia’s invasion. 

In this event, John will discuss his experience working in Ukraine, present a selection of the photographs he has made, and show his film “War, Through Train Windows” — a story about loss, displacement, being a refugee, from the perspective of portraits through train windows.
