Photofront. Only the Truth [1941-1945]

"His wartime photographs are photographs of men, remaining men – notwithstanding all the hardship, deprivation, cruelty, and death around them. They are not heroes. They are men, simply men. When you look at Ignatovich's photographs, it seems that all his life he took pictures of good people. Or maybe that's just because there weren't any bad people around him?" Valerii Stigneev
