Ukrzaliznytsia is a photo project by Ukrainian author Julie Poly (real name – Yuliya Polyashchenko) that she filmed during 2017–2019. Having experience of working as a train conductor, Julie captures the very essence of travelling in Ukrainian trains. ‘Ukrzaliznytsia’ is also the name of the Ukrainian state railway company. “Train cars look like a primitive iron box, but inside is where all the action happens. Ukrainian trains have an absolutely unique atmosphere. It only seems that they are just means of transportation. But really the Ukrainian railway is a different world and everyone who gets on board knows its rules. The project depicts certain stereotypes of passengers and my personal experiences. After flipping through the whole book from cover to cover, you’ll feel like an insider of the Ukrainian trains”, — says Julie Poly.
