5th of Jun is the World Environment Day. This is the eighth exhibition held in the Gallery "Radul-bey's Konak", which was too small for countless visitors. Honor to start the opening of the exhibition went to the youngest of our fellow citizens. The pupils of Elementary school Ljuba Nesic from Zajecar held the performance with an emphasis on preservation of our nature. They carried out their performance on the instruments that are themselves made from recycled materials, saying that time and thus can not protect the planet earth.
- We, the students of the primary school "Ljuba Nesic," wanted to participate in the celebration of this important date, the World Environment Day. We have used our creativity, knowledge and we made objects and images from different, but used materials. By the process of recycling we gave a small but significant contribution to the conservation of natural resources and minimize adverse environmental impacts.
Enjoy the exhibition! Serbian version:
The guests were welcomed by Mr. Perislav Ducic, director of the Center for Culture Zajecara, which among other things stated the importance of this exhibition in Zajecar in a cultural sense that for eight years has been organized in our city.

In behalf of the Photo Association of Serbia Mr Miroslav Predojevic, president of the Arts Council of FSS alslo welcomed all gests.
- Ladies and Gentlemen,
The organizers of the photo exhibition "Ecological Truth", Cultural Centre Zajecar, Institute of Public Health "Timoc" Zajecar and Photo Club 202 Zajecar, which in its name have today, and not just today the current concept of ecology, privileged me as the President of the Arts Council of the Photo Association of Serbia make a few, modest observations about the works that pay to Zajecar cultural public for inspection.
Nature as inspiration has always been inevitable in the works of many artists, photographers especially in the period from 1839. to date, but the nature and its pristine beauty in the modern world is in a constant defensive in relation to various forms of pollution.
On one hand, at the exhibition "Ecological Truth" we have the still untouched beauty, the other alarming examples of uncontrolled human influence on the environment in which they live.
Knowingly taking advantage of the photos, the works respond in two ways: in one case, build an illusion where they are not visible to effects of post-industrial civilization and global environmental pollution. In the second case, the shocking photographs harsh public opinion raises the issue of environmental pollution, which is the predominant attitude and purpose. Both of them want interest: first beauty refined visual access, and other dramatic message. The first is our hope, lust for life, and others seek the overall responsibility for the destruction and pollution.
So, when meeting with striking photographic creativity by scattered all over the world, all of us are offered precious moments of relaxation and union with his own thoughts, when we are being inevitably drawn into thinking about the nature, fantasy, colors, intertwining photographic and pictorial language for a moment stray on the wings of spiritual beauty that frees us from our own internal chaos.
If this does not happen, you will certainly be concerned about the world that we did not get the one-time use, as with most things we use today, but to preserve it for our children.
Finally, let me say that this exhibition in its eighth edition, with aspects highly valued and respectable created over time: their cultural, educational, urban, ethics, communication, dimension, and certainly well-deserved satisfaction of the organizers for the hard work invested, where is the vision for a better world and us in it the main driving force.
Thanks a lot with hope to live in a better world and a cleaner environment.
