His friends and colleagues gathered some of his best photographs from hotspots around the world to compile a collection of his work. The album will be unveiled at a news conference to be attended by the heads of media outlets and Stenin's contemporaries.
"Andrei Stenin’s album, published by Rossiya Segodnya, pays tribute to his memory and confirms that we have not and will not forget him. This publication expresses our respect and love for Andrei as a colleague, friend and top-class professional," head of Rossiya Segodnya's Integrated Photography Directorate Alexander Shtol said.
Stenin was awarded the Russian Order of Courage posthumously for bravery and heroism in the performance of his professional duties.
Stenin specialized in capturing various kinds of accidents, riots, military and armed conflicts. Syria, the Gaza Strip, Libya and Turkey are but a few of the places he worked in over the years of his service.
His photos won the Silver Camera competition on two occasions. A photo he shot during the conflict in Ukraine in 2014 won the Picture of the Year International.
Russia’s largest international contest for young photographers is named after Stenin and is run by Rossiya Segodnya under the auspices of the Russian Federation Commission for UNESCO. Photographers aged between 18 and 33 are eligible to take part in the competition, which hopes to help them to establish their professional credentials and broaden their professional network.
Other Russian journalists have also fallen while on assignment in eastern Ukraine, including Channel 1 operator Anatoly Klyan, Rossiya TV network correspondent Igor Kornelyuk and sound engineer Anton Voloshin. Like Stenin, they were posthumously awarded the Order of Courage.
