Sputnik Photos – a collective of documentary photographers from Central and Eastern Europe – holds an exhibition of work in Utrecht, The Netherlands. The exhibition marks the opening of a new headquarters for documentary photography organisation Fotodok.

Sputnik Photos, a collective of Eastern European documentary photographers, is showing work from three projects in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Stand By documents daily life in Belarus, U looks at the uncertain political situation in Ukraine, and Distant Place explores the Vistula River in Warsaw.

The collective was founded in 2006 and mainly focuses its efforts on documenting life in Central and Eastern Europe through books, exhibitions, lectures and multimedia. Members include photographer Rafal Milach, and Adam Pańczuk, whose book Karczeby has won the Best Photography Book Award in the 71st Pictures of the Year International competition. 

The exhibition is being held in association with documentary photography organisation Fotodok to mark the opening of its new premises in The Netherlands. Founded in 2008, Fotodok aims to “tell socially engaged stories through documentary photography”. It organises exhibitions, lectures and workshops internationally.

Approximately 100 images will be on display.

The exhibition runs from 02 March to 13 April at Lange Nieuwstraat 7, Utrecht, The Netherlands. Hours: Wed-Sun, 12-5pm. Exhibition tours with Sputnik Photos will take place on 02 March at 1.30pm and 2pm.
