Photoconcert is freshly created concept (invented by Ramona Apalko & Kristina Morins) which suggests a new form of relationship between two media: photography and music. Within the frame of this event, held on 25 July 2015 in Riga (Latvia), “KITCHEN exposition” traditionally united four young Latvian photographers: Annija Veldre, Asya Belova, Kristina Sisejeva and Madara Gritāne. The Ukrainian photographer Lesya Polesya from Kiev has become a special participant. Each photographer-participant had a challenge to create an exclusive photofable inspired by a song from “Kris&Oz” playlist.

COMMENT BY RAMONA APALKO, CURATOR:
KITCHEN exposition keeps testing new concepts of events, involving young photographers and searching for new kind of relationships between photography and other medias. This year, inspired by Kris&Oz’s playlist, a freshly created concept of a #photoconcert was born. After observing a fantastic feedback, KITCHEN exposition will certainly continue to promote a notion of #photoconcert in Riga and elsewhere. Stay tuned!
