  • The position, the title and the payments from the State, earn big focus in this arena. Intended as prometwpida the title and photo Museum kairoys, paroysiasei important exhibitions has photo, Ellinon and foreign artists. However there ... Not intended peisei, my opinion, the public of Thessaloniki for reliability, maybe why, don't proseggise with poikiles activities and not only with exhibitions, proseggise not the small groups of local and ypertopikwn Island am Cup that trying to ypiretisoyn and to diadosoyn the art of photo, and delightful, it diapneetai a spirit elitismoy. The Cosmos but needs and wants and can approach the photo at all. , only that there is, at least with this activity, stay in town an extra dynamic. We want and we are waiting for from address, more.
