Justyna Mielnikiewicz was born in Poland and now lives in Tbilisi, Georgia. Her journalism focuses on issues of politics and war in the South Caucasus by looking at the daily lives of the people and their environment. She also photographs the lives of the Russian Army and the Georgian Army in the process of training, fighting and dying. The depth, contrast and grain of Justyna’s black and white images in the Caucasus andCaspian captures an antiquated sense of life not unaware of the modern era. Justyna is a co-founder and member of Eve Photographers and Sputnick Photos.
