The “Photophobia”
project does not aim to refuse from photography as art form, the title is
rather an invitation to reflect on contemporary photography and forms of its
existence and representation. Technologies allow refusing from traditional
printing and creating multimedia projects with sound, subtitles, special
effects, etc. 


“Photophobia” is: 

- a fear to freeze
on a gallery wall in the form of a print,

- access for wider
audience due to new media,

- aspiration to new
forms of existence of photography,

- democratic
approach and absence of professional restrictions
