A powerful and haunting visual record, Stephen Shore’s portraits highlight the resilience and hope of Ukraine’s Holocaust survivors.

Shore’s latest project is his most emotionally-charged to date and the first photobook on this subject.

An important cultural document, Survivors in Ukraine sits between the traditions of the diaristic colour photobook that Shore himself pioneered with Uncommon Places (1982) and American Surfaces (2005), and that of the ‘concerned’ photographer using the camera as witness to conflict and other historic events.

Stephen Shore is one of the most influential photographers living today. His photographs from the 1970s, taken on road trips across America, established him as a pioneer in the use of colour in art photography. He has been director of the Photography Program at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, since 1982. In 1971 Shore became the first living photographer to have a solo exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. His photographs have since been exhibited internationally, including the Tate Modern’s first exhibition of photography ‘Cruel and Tender’ in 2003. His work has been collected by museums around the world including the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

"As a recorder of the fleeting but highly charged moments in the everyday, the weight of Shore's influence is undeniable."
Creative Review on Stephen Shore

"[Shore's] exquisitely composed colour photographs became the benchmark for documenting our consumer-driven, fast-living world."
Lexus magazine on Stephen Shore

"Shore invites readers to explore a nostalgic yet fresh observation of a moment in history... [and] with his talent for composition and colour, unites the shades of life's histories into a depiction of endurance and humility."

"'Survivors In Ukraine' merges landscape, observation and portraiture. Its evocation of a place and its people is made all the more powerful by the history - and the personal stories of survival - that haunt the images... For all the weight of history that attends the project, it is a quiet book. It brims with telling details... [Shore's] quietly observational images speak not just of survival, but of an extraordinary individual and collective resilience."
The Guardian

"I've the utmost respect for photographers and storytellers who dedicate years of their lives to one subject and give us in-depth insights into world's we'd otherwise know very little about."—Elena Heatherwick, Elle
