This year, the Odesa Photo Days festival for the first time held an all-Ukrainian open call Female Ukrainian Photographers to show what Ukrainian authors shoot, what they care about, how they form stories and visual messages, and use these examples to trace how contemporary photography is developing in Ukraine. Curator of the project is Kateryna Radchenko.

The finalists explore topics such as mental health, corporality, quarantine and pandemic experiences, individual and collective memory, relationships with parents and more. Regardless of the experience in photography, the authors observe and capture their unique life and professional practices.

Bristol Photo Festival is a new festival in the format of a biennial with a year-round program of events, collaborations and exhibitions by both local and international artists. The first programme of exhibitions launched this May, bringing together the city’s major visual arts institutions, alongside independent and unconventional spaces.
