Life Underground

in the words of Lorenzo Meloni

Kyiv now experiences two parallel and opposite dimensions. On the surface, young men and women prepare for battle, while in the basement of buildings and metro tunnels, families seek shelter. From hour to hour the mood changes, there are moments when everything seems to be going well and then suddenly for reasons beyond logic the tension rises. The tanks are still at the gates of the city. Yesterday I went to take pictures on the front line, it seemed relatively calm, but it seems that tomorrow I won't be able to return to the same place because the Russian Army have advanced.
