The Theme:
International Photography Exhibition - Galaţi 2018

You will meet and recognize the spirit and the talent of the creative vision. This initiative exists to honor art and artists who bring their work and talent to complement the cultural heritage of the whole world to which we Romanians must remain connected. It is a moment in time, in which we celebrate collective value in ideas, discipline and execution. Whether it provokes unfortunate social norms, captures moments of epiphany of life or advocates a positive change, the exhibition knows that art propels the world in a better direction.

Photographer Tony Melvin presents oil wrestling in Turkey.

In the summer of 2013, Tony Melvin photographed - Kırkpınar - oil wrestling in Turkey.

The Theme of the last Exhibition:
Baia Mare, Rumänien. September/ Oktober 2016

"Photography has become a social phenomenon. Technical advancements allows everyone to own a camera and is accompanied by the 'magical' darkroom everywhere.

If the photographic technique is easily accessible to anyone without negligible costs, we can not say the same about the pace at which the photographic language is mastered by most of us."
Vasile Dorolt, Curator
