The Information Front: Volume One features photojournalism of the war covered by those photographers who are most vulnerable: Ukrainian photographers themselves. This newspaper functions as a platform to support their important work and, through dissemination and circulation, to maintain visibility of the war.
All profit from the sales of The Information Front will go to the Ukrainian organization Depth of the Arts Fund, which supports the necessary work of independent media in Ukraine by directly funding the photographers themselves.

Featuring text by Ukrainian poet, author, and political activist Serhiy Zhadan.
