"City faces": come to the city, take pictures and have your pictures taken!
Such is the world that during crucial times one not only begins to hope for a better changes, but also to appreciate more what one has. And today Uzhgorod has quite a lot - blue sky overhead, the bright sun, welcoming shade under trees, quiet streets, hospitable coffee shops and people, people, people...
They say, the most interesting terrain on Earth is the human face. It is true.One can watch faces of the people forever. They reflect joy and sorrow, flirt, surprise, sadness, euphoria, dreaminess, expectation, gloom, curiosity, interest, inspiration... infinite number of states and emotions, predictable and unexpected, hidden and sincere.
Each era has something unique, characteristic of only these people, only in their lives. Is it possible to capture this state, make it a snapshot for posterity? We will try to do it!
Within the first city photography contest "City accents. Uzhgorod - 2014", we invite artists to hold a charity flash photo session "City faces."
Also we invite Uzhgorod residents willing to take part in the event to become models for a day. And absolutely anyone can become such a model.
The purpose of the flash session is to create an instant historical slice of Uzhgorod life in the form of portraits of its residents during one day in 2014. This time, it's not a creative competition. Works will not be judged.They will become artistically made document in the annals of Uzhgorod, capture us as we are for posterity.
Works of the flash session are planned to be published as a separate section of the contest catalog "City accents", exhibited in a separate exhibition under the auspices of the city, and perhaps sold at the auction. All of them will be available online.
The summer is almost over. Gray skies of gloomy autumn and winter days, not quite compatible with creativity, are ahead. Let us use the opportunity to organize an interesting and informative event!
Photographers, who will kindly agree to give Uzhgorod a share of their skills, and all willing to become models for the flash session will gather on Sunday, August 17th, in the Mustard Seed Lane at 17.00. There may be a small promenade downtown.
Unfortunately, there is no possibility to appeal personally to each of the photographers. Please consider this message an invitation to participate in the flash session to all of our photographers. Let us leave our mark in the annals of the city!
