The third MONTH OF PHOTOGRAPHY, a festival of authorial photography, is drawing near. Similarly to some other European capitals it ties various organizations, museums and galleries into a united group of photographic exhibitions organizers. In this way around 30 domestic and foreign authorial photography projects accompanied by a rich additional program will be presented in about a month, between the middle of October and the end of November. In this time and place, where contemporary photography has not yet achieved a satisfactory status on the institutional level that would match this media to other creative practices of fine art, this kind of program is welcomed by all lovers of photography and visual art as such.


Apart from the Month of Photography exhibitions, this year's edition offers a lively accompanying program, such as the Talks on Contemporary Photography, which will include different sections: "Development in the Field of Contemporary Art Photography in the Region of Central and Southeast Europe section", "Photography and Publishing", "Talks with Exhibitions' Artists and Curators" and "Photography Education" as well as lectures, symposium, guided exhibitions, etc. The award for the Exhibition of the year will be rewarded to an author of an individual exhibition and a gallerist or curator of a collective exhibition.


Month of Photography will start with an international collective exhibition Photonic Moments, a review of contemporary photography originating in the countries of East and Southeast Europe. This exhibition is also the official exhibition of the festival and will be shown at many different European destinations during the next year. This time, the exhibition hosts 18 authors coming from 6 countries (Greece, Croatia, Hungary, Slovenia, Serbia and Turkey).


We prepared a large number of exhibitions this year to be shown from the middle of October and throughout November 2008 at show grounds in Ljubljana and others parts of Slovenia. The list of the exhibitions and dates of openings can be seen below (attached).


At the beginning of the festival a press/info center will be running in Cankarjev dom at conference room M1 – catalogues, promotion material, foreign magazines and other material will be available there. The centre will be opened each day between 3 and 7 pm.
