COMMENT BY DIRECTOR OF QUAI26 GALLERY:
KITCHEN’s main goal is supporting of young photographers that is why it deserved my greatest attention. I was first impressed and interested by the energy and tenacity of Ramona Apalko while defending her project. KITCHEN, artistic “cooking”, is for me an experience which deserves to be supported and promotioned. For more than four years, quai26 exhibits artists who have chosen photography as a way of expression. I will defend this project with a great excitment and exhibit works of four selected photographes. (c) Dominique Coulon
