15 photographs from Turkey, Russia and Greece will take part in the photograph exhibition Time Within Us. They will present their pictures first in Istanbul and then they will travel for biennales respectively in Moscow and Thessaloniki, reports the website

Every country will present the same 150 photographs in the exhibition, however every curator will choose their own way they will be arranged. The curators in every country are respectively: Egin Ozendes, who works for the photographs’ exhibitions in the Istanbul museum of modern art, Olga Sviblova – Director of the Museum of photography in Moscow and Vangelis Ioakimidis – Director of the Museum of photography in Thessaloniki.

The exhibition starts on January 27th in Istanbul and is part of the events of “Istanbul 2010 – cultural capital of Europe”. In Moscow the photographs will be part of the International Photographic biennale in March 2010 and in April in Thessaloniki the exhibition will visit the 21st International meeting of photographers. The name of the exhibition – “Time Within Us” has been chosen by Engin Ozendes for its presentation in Istanbul.

The goal of the exhibition is to present to the audience some already established young photographers from the three countries and present some of the art trends in Greece, Turkey and Russia. “I have chosen not to qualify the photographers according to their country, in order not to blend those boundaries”, says Engin Ozendes, curator of the exhibition in Istanbul, who has combined the pictures in seven common topics. 

The following photographs will take part at the exhibition: Christina Dimitriadi, Stratos Kalafatis, Panos Kokinias, Giorgios Kordakis, Paris Petridis, Deniz Açikalin, Berk Bilgin, Burcu Göknar, Tolga Özgal, Yusuf Sevinçli, Petr Lovigin, Ivan Mikhailov, Tim Parchikov, Natasha Pavlovskaya, Georgy Pervov.
