Arriving at Zajecar, I looked for a spot, where 36. International exhibition of art photography, with child as a subject, was taking place. After a few instructions that I got from kind locals, I found myself at a very pleasant rustic ambient, dominated by stone and massive wooden beams, cracked by age. Under a warm light, I felt very enjoyably. I saw a few familiar faces right away, browsing through photos that came from all over the world, and I met new ones, I can already say, friends. After grand opening of the exhibition, our kind host Rasa Milivojevic greeted us and has shown a great enjoyment because exhibition was also attended, besides me, by award winners from abroad, with whom I had the pleasure to exchange opinions and experiences over an extensive branch. I only regret not having the opportunity to try Rasa’s home-maid wine, because I had to drive.
See you again in Zajecar next year!
