Moscow House of Photography, The Moscow Times, MasterCard Europe, with support from VTB Capital and Underground.
Fotopodpolie is proud to present the exhibition ‘CREATE YOURSELF’ as part of a charity program to help vulnerable and disabled children. At the opening Ferrero Russia will provide gifts of sweets for the exhibiting artists.
This is an exhibition of photographs taken by the children themselves. Photography and art do not always cure disease but they can accomplish a lot in helping a child to express itself, contributing to an overall sense of fulfilment and contentment.
When a person sees the fruits of their labour, be it building a house, planting a tree, painting a picture or writing a story, they find happiness because they feel that they have produced something on this earth. It is especially pleasant when that achievement is recognized not only by family, friends and colleagues but by the many people who surround us.
This is why, despite their ill health, we want to give these children the opportunity not only to create something but also to see vivid proof of their creativity.
The exhibition will run from 13 to 19 October (12:00 to 21:00) in the Manezh Central Exhibition Hall (1 Manezhnaya Sq.). Entry is free.
The children are ready to welcome you as their guests!
