MOVEMENT is a cross-cutting theme of the festival. KROK -
in Belarusian means step. A step is the beginning of a movement, and then the ROADS begin...
We encourage Amateur photographers
and professionals to become participants of the festival competition "MY ROADS"
and send pictures that represent the state of constant movement, photos that indicate the road in a literal and figurative form. We are waiting for your photos with interesting subjects or views taken on the way.
Aristotle claimed that there is the very first moving principle that causes all movement and change.
And this beginning is incomprehensible and unchangeable, and the movement itself is eternal and represents pure energy. Everything that happens around us doesn't just come out of nowhere. Everything we have achieved or failed to achieve in our lives is the result of movement or, conversely, inaction. It is important to understand that movement can be not only in the form of some physical action, but also in the form of spiritual and mental development. All spheres of a person's life, from career to spiritual balance, depend on movement. MOVEMENT is a cross-cutting theme of the festival. KROK means step in Belarusian. A step is the beginning of a movement, then the ROADS begin...

They contain power of aesthetic impact that relies mostly on simplicity of framing and programmed, controlled detached attitude of the photographer. Perhaps this way of realization makes it impossible to associate these pictures with any ideology or to submit them to any mystification.
They are documentary pictures – very much so. But they cannot be clearly associated with any particular period.
It seems like the artist succeeded in introducing a sort of relativisation of time. But even if it was not his intention still we are left with very good photographs that deny passing. It means that they play a role that is basic for photography and with which photography is mainly associated. They do not record a "decisive moment" or any special event, they do not relate anything. They just are. That makes their impact so powerful.

I'M NOT A PHOTOGRAPHER
Sergey Chilikov (Russia)
Posthumous exhibition of the philosopher and photographer from Yoshkar-Ola Sergey Chilikov. He was one of the leaders of the new Soviet photography of the 1970s, a bright personality in social art and one of the founders of the creative group "Fact".
Sergey Chilikov is called "a photographer among philosophers and a philosopher among photographers". He is the author of a book on Russian analytical philosophy "ARTSEG. The owner of a thing, or the Ontology of subjectivity. (Theoretical and historical essay)".
Chilikov is a photographer with a well-formed style and
a pronounced aesthetic.his works are formally staged.
A characteristic technique for Chilikov is the use of real characters (and items) in a real environment and circumstances. Only their relationships are unreal: they are directed by the author. Sergey Chilikov creates his own playing field where he takes pictures, where recognizable characters are placed in a recognizable space.
On June 21, 2020, the outstanding artist died. Sergey Chilikov is world-famous as a photographer, but he personally claimed that he never was. A multimedia project "I am NOT a PHOTOGRAPHER"has been prepared in his memory.

DOCUMENTARY PHOTO
BETWEEN RIGHT AND SHAME
Tatyana Tkacheva
(Minsk)
Exhibition of a documentary photo project of a young Belarusian photographer who became the winner of World Press Photo 2020
Accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant, infidelity of her husband, violence, early pregnancy, difficult childbirth, illness, poverty and fear of loneliness-photographer Tatyana Tkacheva in the project "Between right and shame" gives the floor to women who for these and other reasons decided to have an abortion.
"The back is allowed – the face is not necessary" - under this condition, one of the heroines agreed to take part in the project. Almost all the women didn't want to show their faces. The topic of abortion is not just about the choice to give birth or not. This is about how relations between women and men are built in our country, it is about the position of women in Belarusian society.

ODESSA-NY
Viсtor Ratushny
(Odessa)
Exhibition of two exhibitions of a recently deceased American photographer from Odessa: "Odessa. 1985" and " new York before and after»
Photos taken by Victor in two geographically very remote from each other, diametrically different in style, are United by the style of the photographer. Despite the fact that they are different in color – colored Odessa and black-and-white new York, they are equally documentary and artistic at the same time. The Odessa theme was born thanks to the orwochrom slide film. Her young 33-year-old photographer shot for one year.
Ratushny showed a multi-layered Odessa with a real, authentic texture, with live characters.
American history is centered in a week of shooting against the backdrop of the tragedy of the terrorist attack in new York on September 11, 2001. For a whole week, America did not laugh – there was shock and memorial displays of love and sincere grief. And then the showdown began: who is looking for the remains of their brothers, who is looking for gold bars.
The combination of two strong contrasts of social and coloristic, gives a very strong impression of viewing.

An exhibition that can give an answer to whether you need to be a believer to fix faith
Sergey Voronin, a former military and news photographer, has been shooting Orthodox photography for more than 30 years. He periodically visits remote and remote places of the country, makes pilgrimages, takes part in religious processions. In his opinion, this is an endless process: it is impossible to remove faith until the end. You can only shoot the movement to it.
"This is a very personal topic, of course. I'm not a religious person, but I'm very often among religious people. I know a lot of fathers. All my heroes are better than me, they are wonderful people. Being among them makes you feel better. Each of you can make a choice sooner or later, not necessarily the same – any, and go to a place where it will become better, where it will make a simple human act. " S. Voronin

ART PHOTO
GOOD MORNING, PICASSO!
Dmitry Morgulis (Khabarovsk)
Unique exhibition of Khabarovsk photographer Dmitry Morgulis. It contains unusual photos. The photographer drew famous paintings of the Spanish artist Pablo Picasso on people's faces.
First of all, Dmitry chose the artist's paintings, then he looked for a sitter for each of them. The exhibition also includes photographs taken on film.
We can say that Morgulis in his project dedicated to P. Picasso, to some extent follows the path of Picasso in his project "Variations on the theme of the painting "Menina" by Velasquez, where he posed a problem that has always worried him – the relationship of the artist, model and viewer. Here Morgulis tries to solve the same problem, but already on the material of Picasso himself.
"Good morning, Picasso!" - this is my interpretation of the work of the great artist, the project was made for three years. Picasso is recognized as the most famous artist in the world Dmitry Morgulis explained the idea of creating an exhibition. He holds the record for the most expensive painting sold. Surprisingly, this artist began his work with photographically accurate paintings, and then moved to cubism.
The author of this exhibition also went this way.
SUPREMATISM IN REALITY
Valera and Natasha Cherkashin (Moscow)
An exhibition of world-class artists created specifically for the festival in honor of the 100th anniversary of UNOVIS.
Valera turned to the topic of Suprematism in 1977-1989 during his experience with the Sterligov Group in Saint Petersburg. Until then, Suprematism had completely neutralized and geometrized forms, and Sterligov and his school had pushed Malevich's discovery towards nature. This was not a return to nature, but a new attitude to it, after Suprematism. The desire for spirituality did not add material weight to the forms, but changed the geometry. The deep experience of working with the" Sterligov Group " was reflected in all the subsequent creative work of the Cherkashins. "Kazimir Malevich lived in a very tragic time and his main colors were black and red on a white background. We are also in a difficult transition period of Perestroika, which is probably why these colors have become predominant for us. They were a form of photographic artifacts in real space. We combined photographic reality with the Suprematist forms that we implanted in it."
DASHA ART -
artist and photographer
Daria Eremeeva (Vitebsk)
Exhibition of the Best European photographer of 2020 according to FEP.
For more than 7 years, DASHA has been inventing, drawing and photographing her ideas in the field of fine art and fashion, in particular concept art and emotional creativity. This is the case when a combination of directions occurred in the search for your type of activity. The love of painting and photography were combined together and that is why the camera gives such unusual results in the hands of the artist.
Why build a set if there are professionals in 3D? But, to all these questions, there is the simplest answer… It is the creation process that brings the greatest pleasure to the author. "First I create a picture, and only then I photograph it. These are my ART photos, first art, and then photos."
EXPERIMENTAL PHOTO
EDGE OF THE WORLD
Jānis Deinats (Riga)
Where are we? What is the space in which we are immersed? How does time flow around us, and what is time itself? After all, each of us is always simultaneously in several spaces and in several times. We only see that everything around us is uniform, constant, and linear.
And one day, perhaps, we will begin to feel the "edge of the world", and maybe we will find ourselves at it – in the border zone, where there are no guarantees and promises.
This sense of the changeability of the definiteness of place and state was captured by a photograph in which the author's impulsive submission to the divine movement of the regularity of random coincidences of time and this was translated into images recreated by multi-exposure and a sequence of frames taken one after the other.
"Edge of the world" is a project about the peculiarities of our perception and awareness.
We tend to judge our lives and the lives of others without taking into account the important signs surrounding us. Without even noticing them, or quickly forgetting them – an infinite number of moments and events, the appearance of which means so much, but is always fleeting.

ARCHAEOLOGY OF PHOTOGRAPHY. IN SEARCH OF LOST TIME
Svyatoslav Ponomarev (Moscow)
Svyatoslav Ponomarev is an artist with a holistic worldview, which allows him to be organically realized in art practice. With this project, the artist studies photography as an object that stops time and thickens it, like a resin that catches a bug and – for a million years-turns it and its time into a crystal that sparkles in the light like a jewel. Amber of time-photography? Ponomarev's interest in Time is organically linked to his deep attention to text as a sign and to photography as a form. He is a reluctant archaeologist who accidentally found lost documents-old photographs. Finding no joy of finding, but there is no sorrow, bitterness, as it is outside the individual, and keeping the tone of detachment, operating with finding the height of objectified experiment, the artist connects her with the text of Marcel Proust's "In search of lost time".

PHOTOGRAPHY
Photo Club "Minsk"
(Minsk)
At the festival in honor of its 60th anniversary, the Belarusian people's photo club "Minsk"presents a unique photo collection of experimental photography "FOTOGRAFIKA".
Developed in 1971, the new creative concept of the photo club "Minsk" for inter-club art all-Union photo exhibitions was a breakthrough in another creative state of the photo club. "Fotografika-71" began to be considered as a creative work of multinational Soviet Amateur photography, and at the level of the vtssps it was decided to make this exhibition a traditional one, with an announced frequency of 2 years.
With the successful holding of the exhibition "Fotografika-71" (and subsequent – '73,'75,'78,'81, '89) Belarusian art photography has become a landmark in the all-Union photographic movement, and the Minsk photo club has become a real "photomekka" for creative photographers not only of the Soviet Union, but also of foreign countries.
Vladimir Pavlov, the club's Chairman, represents the collection on behalf of the club.

Art-residence "Fashion never cries"
Photographer Yulia Chernova, as well as the heroes of her project during the coronavirus pandemic, was at home on self-isolation and conducted shooting on Skype.
Eleven designers from different cities of Russia and one invited guest from Belarus took part in an unprecedented art project: they told in an interview about their civil and business position in the "COVID 19" situation and showed through a webcam how and how they live in self-isolation.
The result is an incredibly sincere and honest project that reveals the secrets of life and art of young and already famous designers of clothing and accessories in the conditions of home self-isolation in the lens of photographer and journalist Yulia Chernova. The project was curated by designer and stylist Anna Skorokhodova.
