They will discover the importance of visual storytelling and exhibition making by combining different works and projects.

Overcrowding – Photography Screening

Population growth is one of the most important problems facing many countries around the world today. Industrialized cities, decreasing agricultural resources in rural regions, new economic opportunities provided by big cities, and external migration have a significant role in this population increase. In this photography screening, we will be able to see the examples of these changes related to population growth around the world. Results of socioeconomic change and environmental transformation are questioning in different geographies.

Calling photographers.
