EEC / POSTCARD PHOTO COMPETITION: Odkrytki. Kochanym ciotkom (PL)

13 May – 3 July 2016



The competition is organized by the Odkrytki. Kochanym ciotkom collective and the WRO Art Center. It aims to bring together the most interesting photos documenting in various ways different places, exhibitions, events, artists, and the city itself within the Eco Expanded City project. We want to deeper engage the audience – both professionals and amateurs. The jury will choose 20 most striking photographs and make a unique series of postcards from them.

The “Odkrytki. Kochanym ciotkom” project attempts to upgrade the idea of making postcards. Things that mostly come to mind when thinking of a postcard, such as the size of 10 × 15 cm, a usually laminated cover photo with a picturesque landscape, often collagelike and with unrefined caption – became a kitschy anti-example for the founders of the collective. From the very beginning, their goal was to fight the stereotypical approach to postcards, both in terms of its form and content. They play with the form of a postcard to showcase unknown or hidden places that might otherwise never have seen the daylight. The “Odkrytki. Kochanym ciotkom” collective also wants to change the way of thinking about presenting photographs. Everyone can be an artist. For the ”Odkrytki. Kochanym ciotkom” collective it is also important not only to make postcards, but also to send them to friends, family, cultural institutions, and to keep the tradition alive.

The Odkrytki. Kochanym ciotkom collective was formed by Paulina Anna Galanciak + Katarzyna Ramocka + Michał Woroniak (PL)

She also organizes photography activities for children and youth within the TIFF Collective. She is a permanent (and sometimes self-proclaimed) “arranger” and a perpetual guardian of deadlines.

Katarzyna Ramocka, studies Photography at the University of Arts in Poznan. She also graduated from the afa – Wroclaw’s School of Photography. She likes good design and wants to be a sailor.

Michał Woroniak, born in Wroclaw, a photographer, besides a perfectionist. He graduated from the afa – Wroclaw’s School of Photography. Since 2014 a student of Photography at the University of Arts in Poznan. Misunderstood savior of the world.
