Sputnik Photos is an international collective founded in 2006 by 9 documentary photographers from Central and Eastern Europe. They are united in their desire to observe and describe their shared experience of living during the post-Soviet transformation period. They have organised several dozen exhibitions worldwide and have been featured in many photography festivals and magazines. Photo books are an important feature of their practise which are made in collaboration with journalists and writers in order to convey a rounded sense of each project.
Members include: Andrej Balco, Jan Brykczynski, Manca Juvan, Andrei Liankevich, Michal Luczak, Justyna Mielnikewicz, Rafal Milach, Adam Panczuk, Agnieszka Rayss.
