Snapshots from a Euroregion

Photographic impressions from the Euroregion Beskidy at a Polish-Czech exhibition

The exhibition presents the most impressive photographs taken during a Polish-Czech  plein air event which focused on the culture, landscape and architecture of selected places of the Beskidy Euroregion.

16 Polish and Czech photographers, who had been selected in a competition, met at two plein-air events, each lasting one day in May and June. Together they participated in a number of workshops and outdoor sessions, first in picturesque corners of the District of Bielsko-Biała in Poland, then in the area near  Frydek-Mistek in the Czech Republic.

The result is an intimate exhibition filled with personal impressions, where reality is just an excuse to convey emotions.

The organizers of the Polish-Czech photographic plein air event are the Beskidy Region Association and the Centre of Photography Foundation in Bielsko-Biała.

The Polish-Czech workshops were held under the micro-project program “promote" co-financed by the European Union from the European Regional Development Fund under the INTERREG VA Czech Republic - Poland 2014-2020 and from the state budget of the Republic of Poland.

Both the plein air events and the exhibition have been sponsored by Inez Baturo, a photographic artist, curator of the B & B Photographic Gallery in Bielsko-Biała, and the president of the Photographic Foundation.

Vernissage: Thursday, 14 June, 2018, 6 pm.
