International Salon 2014

Propositions – pdf

International exhibition of digital photography

Our daily life is inextricably linked to the photo. They are visual material that built modern life and their omnipresence is imposed regardless of our will, from newspapers, magazines, books, billboards, posters, personal documents, computers, TV, packaging for many products, and the insertion of clothing objects and other quirky materials. Photography in many ways has replaced the written word, and the information that carries speaks with more precision, in an authentic way about people, places, events, copyright preoccupations. Perhaps this effect, which a modern man is overwhelmed with, adversely affects the creative photographic artists, or is it, however, the impetus for their action? Answers to these questions partially can provide Belgrade Photo Salon International 2014, who is looking for them in communicating with a wide global audience.
The main topic of Second International Salon is the CITY because   Belgrade, as the host city of the future in this part of Europe,  holds the balance to  itself, and to others, at the crossroads of cultures…
