"We are not so much interested in the major events that occurred, but rather
how they leave footprints in casual routines, what worries the artists, and why
do they care."

Celebrating Europe

"Right Time Right Place" has been selected to participate in “Celebrating Europe”. The exhibition is part of the European Prospects programme and will take place at Kaunas Photography Gallery and Meno Parkas Gallery from September 5 to 20, 2014 in Kaunas, Lithuania. Opening of the exhibition is on 5th of September, 5.30 pm.

"Ten years ago, ten new members joined the European Union, and in 2007, the community welcomed another three countries. We invite artists to share their observations about the way an enlarged Europe is seen today, reflecting their own perspectives. We are not so much interested in the major events that occurred, but rather how they leave footprints in casual routines, what worries the artists, and why do they care. How do photographers rethink all these changes, and how it is reflected in their work? Our focus is not on these particular events, but small personal stories that occurred due to these great changes - the stories that are perhaps less important on a global scale, but remain significant on a personal level. The new opportunities brought new challenges and trials, so what are our experiences of these changes in society, how has our environment, lifestyle and mentality changed, and what does it all mean to individuals?" (Open call for international exhibition "Celebrating Europe", europeanprospects.org)
