PH0T0J0URNAL CAROLYN DRAKE Sunday morning in Krasiv: Mariya Derzhylo, her husband asleep beside her, greets a young nephew. The couple was visiting her mother's home. Mariya's younger sister and the child's mother also slept in the room that night. Close quarters are normal in Ukraine. It is a socially connected place, with a strong sense of family. Everywhere I went around Volhynia I saw people harvesting hay. I took this picture in Pohulyanka at the end of the day. The men looked exhausted, but they were lucky to have a machine for cutting. Many others have to do it by hand. This guy was throwing hay up in a huge pile on a wagon as it was chopped and spewed by the machine.
