The Union of Lithuanian Art Photographers is organizing the International exhibition of photography How are you? which will take place on December 2001 – January 2002 in Vilnius. The exhibition will be accompanied by the conference dedicated to the social aspects in the photography of East and Central Europe.

Today photography is one of the most popular media in contemporary arts. However, it tends to turn away from one of its major aims – to reflect the relations of a human being and society. Technical and formal experiments sometimes restrict the dispersion of photography as an important form of documenting and interpreting the development of human social consciousness. That’s why in this exhibition the biggest attention will be paid to the photography revealing the individual in the society of the end of the 20th and the beginning of the 21st centuries.

Photographers willing to take part in the exhibition How are you? are kindly asked:

1. To select 4-10 photos (30x40 cm to 40x40 cm), which may be quite recent or produced earlier, and send them to the exhibition organizers. Deadline: October 10, 2001.

On the back of the photo, please, indicate the following information:

- name and surname of the photographer,

- title of the work,

- place and date,

- exact address and telephone of the photographer.

2. To select and send few images for the catalogue of the exhibition and for the press.

The organizers of the exhibition will meet the costs of returning the photos to the participants after the exhibition.

The photos, selected for the exhibition, will be returned to the photographers together with the catalogue till January 31, 2003.

The photos, not selected for the exhibition, will be returned till January 31, 2003.

The exhibition How are you? will be shown in the Prospekto gallery in Vilnius and later on - in other towns.

The exhibition space in the PROSPEKTO gallery for free would be proposed to the authors of the best photographs.

The photo album Lithuanian photography: Yesterday and Today would be sent to all participants as a gift.

The organizers of the exhibition will use the photos sent to the exhibition for reproducing in the catalogue and also for advertising the show without the honorarium to the photographers. The organizers will not be responsible for the loss and damage of photographs during transportation. The receiving of photos means that the photographer agrees with the rules of the exhibition.

The exhibition and the conference are supported by the Lithuanian Ministry of Culture and the Open Society Fund - Lithuania.
