The Information Front (2022-ongoing) | The Information Front is an informal publsihing collective that believes in the power of photography to invoke change through visibility. Using the platform of affordable publication, The Information Front positions the documentation of Russia’s war in Ukraine through those who are most vulnerable: Ukrainian photographers themselves.

The circulation of The Information Front functions as a platform to support the important work of photography, and, through dissemination and circulation, to maintain visibility of the war. All profit from the sales of The Information Front goes to supporting Ukrainian culture, including photographers, in a partnership with Odesa Photo Days. It is a completely independent affair set up by three people, each of whom have direct stakes in Ukraine. Kateryna Radchenko, a Ukrainian photography curator; Donald Weber, a Canadian photographer who has worked in Ukraine since 2002,and Christopher Nunn, a British photographer who has been working in Donbas for more than ten years. Each Volume is designed by Sybrien Kuiper, and lithography by Sebastiaan Hanekroot, Colour & Books.

The Information Front believes that photography plays a crucial role in learning about the violence inflicted and acts as a counter-measure to false truths and propaganda spreading. Volume 1 of The Information Front covers the first two months of the war, Volume 2 explores the quest for Ukrainian identity via its photographic history, and Volume 3 looks at how photography and art has emerged over the period 2013-2023 as crucial tools for documenting and archiving change.
