About the event
UPDATE OF THE FORMAT OF THE CREATIVE MEETING !!! Also #photoillustrata must respond to current epidemiological measures and adapt the format of the program to bring the greatest benefit within the original intention and goal. Therefore, apart from the creative meeting, which will take place on April 21st -25th. (the consultations will be continuously realized always one by / one consultant - one author), we will also be available on-line until the end of June 2021. You can send your photographic works related to the listed topics from the Orlicko area to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "work for consultation". Selected projects will then be included in the exhibition in Červená Voda in autumn, 2021. We would also like to invite the inhabitants of Orlicko, especially those from Červená Voda municipality, to take part in the creation of a collection of portraits of personalities from this region. If you have archival photographs, or take a new portrait in the natural environment (indoors or outdoors) of anyone around you who you think deserves attention (the reason may be whatever it is, "the best grandmother in the world", local shopkeeper or postman, otherwise a publicly visible or beneficial person, etc.), also send them to email@example.com with the subject "portrait". Please include the author's name, the year the photo was taken, if known, the name and year of birth of the person being portrayed, and a brief description of the person and your motivation to send particularly that. We will be looking forward to the emerging collection, which can become part of the exhibition under the slogan #everybodyisimportant#everybodyisseen.
