Even those who deal with photography on a daily basis find it hard to choose valuable works from the flood of ‘photo production’ of recent years. It is really difficult to follow all the novelties, changes, interesting names and ideas. Curators’ presentations during evening slide shows are an attempt to update our knowledge on what is happening in European photography.
We started the series of presentations during the last year’s Fotofestiwal. Different curators brought their different points of view and interests, which resulted in a fascinating photo mix, surprising and fresh, sometimes controversial. The series is meant to present interesting personalities of contemporary photography – curator and, most importantly, artists.
