"Occupy Kiev" by Barbaros Kayan

March 09, 2014

In the wake of plans by the Crimean parliament to set a referendum to endorse joining Russia, we take a look at documentary photographer Barbaros Kayan and his coverage of the Ukrainian protests in his series, "Occupy Kiev." Known extensively for his exploration amidst political upheavals and revolutions-- having also covered the conflicts in Turkey last year with "Occupy Taksim"-- Kayan took to the streets of Kiev to document the protests before they relocated to Crimea.
