About the Project

The World from Dawn till Dusk

 

Every day on television we see the pictures of the world: wars, earthquakes, political demonstrations, football matches, stock-exchange news, fashion shows. Every important item of the news is being broadcast simultaneously from any place in the world. But is the news the complete truth about our world, or is it just its superficial reflection? Is it possible to get deeper, under the surface of the „headline news”? Isn’t the smile of a salesman at the fishmarket in Beijing, or a thoughtful look of a beggar in the Moscow subway going to tell us more about contemporary world and its condition?

 Moscow, Kiev, Minsk, Tokyo, Beijing, Tbilisi have little in common. They are culturally different, have different languages and history. Each of them has already been described many times. Each of them has its own stereotypes which over the years have created their widely known image.  However, behind those banal images, there is another reality - diverse, multidimensional life. We want to feel the pulse of that life, to find one’s way through the superficial shell and reach the truth about a human being in his deepest, personal experience, both in dramatic and amusing moments. We want to achieve all this through micro-observation of the scraps of life.
