Ukraine - The Beginning...
A look at the first three months of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Ukrainians surprised the world with their ability to defend the capital and surrounding areas from the Russian offensive. Yet ethnic cleansing, as well as large displacement of Ukrainians, took place. As the Russians withdrew, the world discovered a litany of war crimes against the civilian population.

Award-winning photojournalist Ron Haviv has produced images of conflict and humanitarian crises that have made headlines from around the world since the end of the Cold War.

A co-founder of the photo agency VII, his work is published by magazines worldwide. Numerous museums and galleries have featured his work, including the Louvre, United Nations, and the Council on Foreign Relations.

He has published critically acclaimed collections of his photograph with the books, Blood and Honey: A Balkan War Journal, Afghanistan: On the Road to Kabul, Haiti: January 2010 and The Lost Rolls.

La Desolata
La Desolata, is of the most poignant processions in the Christian world during Holy Week, in the village of Canosa di Puglia, Italy.

The women of Sorrow cover their heads and hide their faces under a large black veil. Completely dressed in total black, they intone the “Stabat Mater”, a 13th century, highly suggestive hymn, honoring the pain of Desolate Mary for the loss of Her Child, the ultimate suffering of any mother:
“…Is there one who would not weep, whelmed in miseries so deep…”
