For the 5th annual edition, November is the European Month of Photography, with special exhibitions and events in EMOP partner cities of Berlin, Luxembourg, Bratislava, Paris, Lubljana, Budapest and Vienna.
International co-operation in photography? Of course, nothing could be more self-evident! Even 165 years ago when the photographic procedure was first present in Paris, it was already part of a European network, and it could only triumph because its investors, promoters and users were free of national narrow-mindedness. Since then the progress achieved in photography has been linked to the principle of exchanging information and experience, to the interplay of learning and teaching, and to the encouragement of creativity. The “Month of Photography” takes up this good tradition: may it be one brick of the House of European Culture in the 21st century.

Paradise Now presents fragments of nature—some of them mise en scène, others untouched by urban growth—on the periphery of the artificially illuminated infrastructure of large Asian cities.
