Best known for his work in Ukraine, Ty Faruki began in film and progressed towards photography seeing it as a preferred method of documentation and capture.
Much of Ty's development came through music photography, a genre he still admires and continues with today. His photographs have since featured internationally in leading publications including New Statesman, The Irish Times and Complex Magazine
"Visual coverage is intrinsic to an accurate portrayal of social and political issues. For me, photography is the finest example of how to achieve that. Reading allows one to imagine description. A photograph can too"
"I have been photographing Ukraine for 3 years through an interest in my grandfather who was born and raised in Lviv before being sent to a Gulag (concentration camp) in Siberia as a political prisoner. Following what came to be known as the 'grand alliance' during World War II, he was released but made his way back on foot with others."
