August 30 - September 1
The theme of the festival Batumi Photodays 2019 is the “Mirror Land”, a concept that addresses the fake realities, created by the recent political situations, the transformed reflections that are presented by different private stories, countries examples, with the support of various media sources that in result develop wrong values and expectations.
Double standards that our society share with the false structures, lost and messed up meanings and values come across with the traditions and established rules. No time to stop no time to analyze.
The exhibition envisages to bring personal experience of the artists from around the globe, to reflect the issues in their countries, through their practices, things, and topics they want to bring up, in relevance to the main concept of the Photo days such as injustice and fake reality, people are forced to live in, or any other significant stories that will make us stop and think of why we are here what can we do with our life, how can we contribute the world to make if a better place.
Each small drop, a small seed can change something, each small story can reach out someone, and find a reflection in their hearts. It’s a matter of choice whenever we wanna live in reflection or reality.
