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. His photographs have featured internationally in leading publications for a wide array of subjects including New Statesman, The Irish Times, Financial Times and the Telegraph as well as exhibitions within the Ukrainian Embassy and the Houses of Parliament.

"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."
