This piece is based on a source photo Bryce saw on CNN, taken by photographer Timothy Fadek. Fadek was photographing and talking to Ukrainian soldiers as they waited for what they described as an imminent invasion by Russian troops and Russian-backed separatists.
"When I saw the photo, I was affected by it," says Bryce. "It was so simple. Just a Ukrainian soldier holding a cat, at or near the front lines. It's 2022. We’re almost through COVID. We’re trying to get a world economy back on track. We should be fighting climate change, but now Putin has the world on edge, and he’s about to start a war over the Ukraine.This picture was so defining of the proverbial 'calm before the storm.'"
