We’ve finished the selection process and it’s time to officially share it with you and the world. Thank you for all the submissions – your work is the key ingredient and we appreciate your kind words and ongoing support for our idea. I would also like to thank the team of curators: Joanna Kinowska (Leica Gallery Warsaw), Aleksander Bochenek and Grzegorz Ostręga (both WorkshopX) for their commitment and hard work!
Looks like the Eastreet is growing – the open call was a bit shorter and we accepted smaller number of photos (5, compared to 10 last year) and yet – we’ve received more submissions than last year! Also the quality was at least equally high. In the first stage of the (not easy!) selection process, we’ve created a pool of approximately 750 photos selected from the few thousands received in total. After that, 350 photographs were selected to the second editing stage, which took place in Lublin, Poland, a week ago. The final stage, happened only few days in Warsaw, where we were working on the layout of the exhibition and the very final selection. After that, we’ve decided to include 56 photographs in this year’s exhibition.

As I’ve mentioned earlier, the quality of work submitted to Eastreet was really high this year and we would love to include more photographs, which (obviously) isn’t possible. But because we couldn’t just ignore all the remaining great photos – would like to share them with you, and that’s we’ve decided to add the now formula to this year’s Eastreet: the slideshow projection. It will include the additional 50 photographs and will be presented (in loop) on a dedicated gallery wall in as a large format projection.
