CAPTURE ALBANIA

    CAPTURE ALBANIAOur next activity will mark the end of this year’s edition of Capture Albania and the opening of the selected photographs exhibition. There will be 45 carefully selected photographs amidst 100 works submitted by young photographers. This year’s photographs show many aspects of modern Albania. They fall into three categories: The natural landscapes, the urban landscapes and the people.

    The natural landscapes of Albania show more things than any words could ever describe. As for the urban landscapes and the people, they hint to what the participant’s eye values as aesthetic, authentic and representative. This is why “Aesthetics of Transition” would have been a good name for this year’s photo collection. In essence, each photograph conveys a genuine social concern subtly shared by the author. If the whole transition of Albania could be summarized in one picture, we would like it to be a beautiful postcard. In reality, the transition has produced varied images of great interest for architects, urban developers, sociologists etc. Our daily use of the word transition has made it a synonym of economic distress, institutional reforms etc.

    In photography, the transition takes as many shapes and colors as light carries through the camera lenses. Interactivity is the way through which life in society expresses itself. It draws a picture that inspire to the creation of poetry, mysticism, nostalgia, comedy etc. These are albanian pictures that give colors, shapes and expressions to an albanian reality. They were primarily taken by albanian professional and amateur photographers and show a need to self-actualize in our surrounding. After all, we all draw inspiration from Mr. Martin Parr’s participation as a jury director in this edition of Capture Albania.
