Eastreet 3 – Sputnik goes East – presentation of projects
Sputnik Photos is an international collective formed by photojournalists from Central and Eastern Europe. Through their projects they examine and document the daily life of Europe. They look at the world around us and try to understand it. They search for what is hidden behind the facade of objects and phenomena. The photographers of the Sputnik Photos have worked in many countries around the world. Their works have been published in, for example, Time, Newsweek, Stern, the Sunday Times Magazine, The New York Times, Le Monde 2. They have also won numerous awards in press photo competitions, such as the World Press Photo, Pictures of the Year International and the Canon AFJ Female Photojournalist Award. Today, Sputnik Photos are working on a new project called „Lost Territories” about the former republics of the Soviet Union. The co-founder of the association, Agnieszka Rayss, will talk about journeys to the East, about individual and group projects, and about the future of Sputnik. The meeting is free of charge.
