Between 2014 and 2016, French photojournalist Pierre Crom (1967) travelled many times to the conflict zone to document the events in Ukraine.
"War in Ukraine" is the result of those journeys. It provides an unnerving account of the escalation of social-economic discontent into military conflict.
A visual documentary, the images in this book brings us closer to those people who got trapped in the chaos of war.
In the midst of this turmoil, one event stands out: Crom's documentation of the downing of the Malaysian Airlines flight MH17.
Journalist Eva Cukier wrote the texts for "War in Ukraine". She holds degrees in Slavic languages and political science and has extensive working experience in Ukraine and Russia.
Currently she works as Eastern Europe editor for the Dutch newspaper NRC Handelsblad.
