Rafael Yaghobzadeh : « Ukraine : From one war to another »
For the photojournalist Rafael Yaghobzadeh, 26 years old, photography has become a lifestyle. In 2014, he began documenting the conflict in Eastern Ukraine. His series Ukraine: D’une Guerre à l’Autre (From One war to Another), is the story of an intricate and extended war. He analyses the armed conflict through the eyes of the economy, identity and religion. For the last three years, he has shared and transcribed everyday life through civilians and militaries. This touching coverage made him win the title for the International Festival of Photojournalism , 29th edition “Visa pour l’image”. His first book Ukraïna, published at “Edition Collection des Photographes”, extends his travels in Ukraine.
