Alexander Veryovkin, Intervention
For the second year in a row, FotoDepartament holds Presence — a festival of contemporary photography in St. Petersburg, Russia.

We have prepared a program that will be of interest to both professionals and the widest audience.

Events of the festival's program variedly declare the presence of photography in the cultural, social, visual and virtual present-day environment. The program expands the meeting, experienced between an image and a viewer, the dialogue arising between them.

The festival hosts exhibitions, an educational art laboratory, talks and lectures from guest curators, magazine editors and artists, a portfolio-review for photographers of different genres, artist projects, performances and actions connecting and changing the human viewer and life experience.
Opening
Opening will take place in Berthold Center on Thursday, October 5, at 7 pm


Program of the festival


The festival's concept suggests studying photo not only as a final aesthetic object, but also as a process including particular actions, relationships, means, perceptions, etc.
