Showcase: Neighborly Hatred. photos by Justyna Mielnikiewicz

Justyna’s Caucasus project is the result of documenting nearly 10 years of life around her. It is not a mere collection of “decisive moments” caught while traipsing around the region but is a compilation of decisive stories, captured in each image, which together tell the larger Caucasus story. The quality of her work is a testament to her deep understanding of the vast complexities that comprise the region and her instinctive abilities to document these complexities from the gut, the epicenter of the soul.

Once again, it is my great pleasure to link ya'll to another Justyna Mielnikiewicz slide show. This one is from James Estrin at the NY Times about her long term work in the Caucasus.
