“Ukraine: A War Crime”
“From the end of February 2022, we have witnessed the occupation of large swaths of a sovereign nation by an outside power, with the singular aim of erasing the Ukrainian nation and identity. We have also witnessed the recapture of some of these territories, all within a span of nine months, and the scale of atrocities is only becoming clear as temporary joy over regaining freedom gives way to calculating the costs, and the sacrifices made. In these images are the testimonies of the living and the dead, who speak in equal terms of all that has been endured.” Nicole Tung, photojournalist.
Ukraine: A War Crime is a unique, collaborative project bringing Ukrainian and international photojournalists to tell the story of the Russian invasion of Ukraine from the perspective of those tasked with documenting it. The images and reportages contributed by these photojournalists covering the conflict, the humanitarian catastrophe, and war crimes investigations, reveal not only the indiscriminate violence of the Russian assault and the displacement of millions of people but also their first-hand experience as photojournalists at work in a war zone.
The project Ukraine: A War Crimes became a book, published by FotoEvidence and supported by the Open Society Foundations and Grodzins Fund, that delves deep beneath the news to tell intimate stories of survivors and witnesses to atrocities, as these photojournalists were often among the first people into liberated villages. Ukraine: A War Crime is a collection of 366 photographs and witness accounts by Ukrainian and International photojournalists. Ninety-three photojournalists from 29 countries united to present their firsthand testimony about the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The book collects visual evidence of the violence and war crimes committed on Ukrainian soil. As such, it will serve as a powerful tool for mobilization, legal prosecution, and as an historical document for future generations.
