  A better understanding of photographic art, inspiration and new experiments often stem from the past. More specifically, the workshop this year will resume at the beginning of photography, in 1839, when the Englishman Talbot first announced the technique of photography. Today his method, calotype, belongs to the alternative printing techniques as it can be done without a dark chamber, out in the sun. Photographers use this technique and others to create a more "painting" and unique effect. The search for such techniques brings back the sense of uniqueness, the handmade and, to some extent, the "mystery" that photography at the time of digital technology has, to some extent, lost. At the workshop will briefly present the history of the technique, instructions for the calotype and then the participants will have the opportunity to create their own photographic papers and to print their own photos by the method of the Workshop Manager: Eleni Tragea, Art Historian and Photography Theorist and the Cinema.

"Dream Street"


"Oh unfulfilled, even when everything leaves you leave us outside our door a little jasmine. "

T. Livaditis

For another year, the themes and photos of the International Festival inspire personal reductions and routes. This year, the path will take us to Dream Street, where the dream is just a moment, where personal dreams come to social dreams, where despair is transformed into hope. Through the 25 best photos of the contest, poetry and personal narratives, we will walk for a while on this street, on the road we inhabit and connect with our dreams, our children dreams, our adult dreams, our lost dreams, our essentials dreams. Because, without the dream, even the unfulfilled, what was the meaning of life?
