Kaunas Photography Gallery received over 150 proposals from around Europe, also a few works from the United States and Australia. All the artists shared their personal outlook and observations about the way an enlarged Europe is seen today, the footprints all these changes have left in the daily routines of people, things that concern the artists and what they care about, as well as how all these viewpoints and thoughts are reflected through their personal photo essays.
