About the project:
Once the photo was able to change the reality, whether it was the life of a private person or the fate of a whole nation. For a long time it was almost the only opportunity to become involved in the historical events, wherever they may occur, to feel the eyewitness. A point of view, emotions, evaluation of events depended on a photographer. Today, TV and the Internet have become such witness media, and professional photographers are moving more and more into the realm of pure art. But the art also changes the world!
