SEE New Perspectives: from Balkan photographers
SEE New Perspectives is a joint project of Robert Bosch Stiftung und World Press Photo. The 15 photographers, whose work is presented in the exhibition, were participants of the Masterclass SEE New Perspectives, which took place in Berlin in 2010. After completion of the Masterclass, the photographers took off to the countries of South Eastern Europe to produce photo essays covering topical themes from their neighboring countries. The exhibition represents a close-up view of relevant societal issues in the Balkans in the years 2010 and 2011.
The topics of the photo essays tell stories about migrant workers commuting between Romania and France, marriage brokers in rural Serbia, international ambitions of a young female wrestler from Bulgaria and many more. The exhibition questions the perception of the other. It opens new perspectives which go beyond the existing stereotypes.
The photographers are: Andrei Pungovschi, Romania; Armend Nimani, Kosovo; Bevis Fusha, Albania; Dženat Dreković, Serbia; Eugenia Maximova, Bulgaria; Ferdi Limani, Kosovo; Jasmin Brutus, Bosnia and Herzegovina; Jetmir Idrizi, Kosovo; Marko Risović, Serbia; Nemanja Pančić, Serbia; Octav Ganea, Romania; Petrut Calinescu, Romania; Sanja Knežević, Serbia; Tomislav Georgiev, Macedonia; Vesselina Nikolaeva, Bulgaria.
