Maidan Square Demonstrations 

March 31, 2014 
by Larry Towell 
Although the fighting has ceased, the Maidan Square demonstrations in Ukraine throughout February 2014 set the stage for the current political climate in the Crimean Peninsula. Larry Towell arrived in Kiev on February 11th, 2014 to document the Euromaidan protests and demonstrations. Only one week later Maidan Square transformed into a conflict zone, and by February 20th over one hundred people had been killed.

With a 35mm panoramic camera in hand, Larry was able to capture this moment of social and political turmoil with unique perspective.
