Rafal Milach grew up in Poland during the collapse of the Soviet Union and as a result his work often uses the transformation of the former Eastern Bloc as a lens through which to understand wider issues. His project Black Sea of Concrete, which takes as its subject the grey coastlines of Ukraine, documents a landscape that is struggling with the physical reminders of a difficult past.

Milach joined Magnum as a Nominee in 2018.
