• Emile Ducke is a German documentary photographer, working across Eastern Europe. A regular contributor to The New York Times, he has covered the consequences of Russia's devastating invasion of Ukraine, documented the effects of melting permafrost above the Arctic circle, and probed the legacy of Stalin’s forced labour camps in the Russian Far East. In longer-term projects, he has focused on the challenges faced by communities in some of Russia’s most remote areas, with photo-essays published by the Washington Post, National Geographic and Der Spiegel, among others. He has been selected a World Press Photo 6x6 visual storyteller, named one of PDN’s 30 emerging photographers to watch, and awarded the Leica Oskar Barnack Newcomer Award. Emile is a member of photo agency Ostkreuz.
