About

Sputnik Photos is an international collective founded in 2006 by documentary photographers from Central and Eastern Europe. We are united by a desire to observe and describe what surrounds us, as well as by our common experience of living in Central and Eastern Europe in the post-transformation period.

The members of the collective are recognized photographers from Poland and Central and Eastern Europe, winners of important international awards, such as World Press Photo or Pictures of the Year. Together we have organized several dozen exhibitions around the world; our projects have been featured at photography festivals and in international magazines.

Photographic books, on which we work with journalists and writers, are an important part of our work. We believe that this form of presentation fully conveys the concentration and engagement with which a photographer approaches a long-term project. The graphic design of our projects is handled by Ania Nalecka / Tapir Book Design.

We are also engaged in photography education – we organize workshops, mentorship programs and provide consultations.

Sputnik Photos photographers: Andrej Balco, Jan Brykczynski, Manca Juvan, Andrei Liankevich, Michal Luczak, Justyna Mielnikiewicz, Rafal Milach, Adam Panczuk, Agnieszka Rayss.

Project coordination is handled by Marzena Michalek-Dabrowska.
