The Portraits of Our Audience | Photography Exhibition

There would be no festivals without attendees. Cultural events without audiences would make no sense. The severe limitation, indeed near-disappearance, of shared, collective experience due to the Covid-19 pandemic has been the most acute deficiency in access to culture. Deprived of the flow of energy between the performers and the audience, concerts are, at best, imitations and substitutes. As for us, we are once again meeting in Błonia near the Castle for East of Culture – Different Sounds. And we are ecstatic to be here with you.

The exhibition presents individual and collective portraits of the audiences at Different Sounds, taken between 2008 and 2020. The images are the work of the festival’s photographers who have always accompanied us on our extraordinary musical journey. Thanks to their keen eyes and cameras always at the ready, they recorded incredible emotions and captured fleeting but unforgettable moments to be treasured and fondly recalled forever.

The photos on display are the work of: Robert Grablewski (who’s been with us from day 1), Ignacy Tokarczyk, Jakub Bodys, Natalia Ogłoszka, Katarzyna Anna Kubiak, Krzysztof Mazur, Tomasz Bylina.
