Until May 7, photographer Rafal Milach (1978, Poland) will be taking over GUP’s Instagram. For more than 10 years, Milach has been working on transition issues in Russian-speaking countries and the Central and Eastern Europe region. As an active producer of photographic works and photo books, Milach has been featured in GUP’s print issues multiple times, with one of his images even gracing the cover of GUP#33, the Stories issue. As a founding member of the collective Sputnik Photos, his work was also included in their group portfolio in GUP#38, the Collaboration issue. GUP has also featured Malach widely online, with portfolios, book reviews and an interview. We have an interview online with Milach and Ania Nałęcka, who designs all of Sputnik’s books. On top of that, you can buy a limited edition print from Milach in GUP’s webshop.
During the takeover, the photographer will mostly share images from the Sputnik Photos upcoming project Lost Territories. Milach will also post behind-the-scenes pictures and side effects of the project.
