Fotografia’s top article of this February was French photographer Julien Lombardi‘s wonderful photographs from Armenia, the most under-represented of the post-Soviet countries. Polish photographer Igor Pisuk follows with his dark, intense self-portraits and pictures of his daily life as a recovering alcohol addict.

The bronze medal goes to American photographer Anna Shimshak with her stunning photographs of clergymen and vowed women religious. Then there’s German photographer Jörg Brüggemann, who offers a powerful angle to the current depiction of the migrant crisis. Finally, American photographer Ewan Telford makes the top five with Rock Salt, his series about a declining mining town in California which premiered on Fotografia in FotoFirst.
