Theme: Time

Every moment of the time is unique. Only when you look back you can understand what it was exactly. A photographer can save something if he had time to realized, analyzed and took a picture. The main constituent of second season’s projects is a time. Time like a projection of the past, present and even future. We’ll see how the young generation defines themselves, everyday life, society, relationships, cities and country in whole. Can young people feel the present time? Is it interesting for them? What they think about around the world? This is another view on time. View from the side of today.
