Life after Injury is a photography project about young, heavily injured Ukrainian soldiers coming home after the war. Visuals document the experiences veterans go through in various stages after getting injured. Since May 2014 the ongoing conflict with Russia-backed rebels and the Russian army has taken over nine thousand lives. More than three thousand Ukrainian soldiers were killed, and almost eleven thousand were injured. The website entitled "Life after Injury" is meant to inform the public about the hardship Ukrainian soldiers have gone through in the battlefield and when coming back home.PROFESSIONAL ANALYSIS:Three World Press Photo winning stories were analyzed for their visual framing of Iraq and Afghanistan war veterans.

Each individual photograph in these stories was analyzed using a fourlevel visual framing analysis, and findings were summarized for each story.
