Photographer's Note

Kind of minimalistic photo. One sees such endless fields going in Ukraine. The photo taken from the bus. I do not know what grows here, I suppose that it is wheat.

From New York Times:

Russia and Ukraine together produce nearly a quarter of the world’s wheat, feeding billions of people in the form of bread, pasta and packaged foods. The countries are also key suppliers of barley, sunflower seed oil and corn, among other products.
Food prices have already risen globally as a result of pandemic-related shipping disruptions, rising costs for farmers and adverse weather, and wheat is no exception.
if farmers could not harvest due to lasting military operations, or if port facilities and railroads have been damaged, the situation will be particularly gloomy. Many countries in North Africa and the Middle East are particularly dependent on wheat from Ukraine and Russia and likely to be hard hit.

Today, i.e. on March 18, at 09.00 the number of refugees in Poland from Ukraine exceeded 2 million. They are mostly women with children. There are many problems connected with it. Most people need accommodation, food, work, medical assistance, children need teachers in school. Another problem is that many people are not vaccinated, there are people ill with tuberculosis.

Two more minimalistic photos in Workshops.
