KAUNAS PHOTO, international photo art festival starts its 13th season and invites to the main exhibition of the festival – “Street value”. This exhibition is the result of a large–scale European collaboration project – “Flâneur – new urban narratives”.

Christopher Mavric Leopard City

The exhibition „Street Value“ raises the character of “Flâneur” – lounger of a street, which entered to the XXI century – exploring public spaces and street photography. Also she/he is exploring manifestations of today’s cities spaces as living, usable and experiences. As one curator of the exhibitions – Leonidas Donskis writes: "The flâneur turns out to be the secret lover of the city; nay, s/he is its savior. In the realm of urban narratives, the old and the new, the flâneur tends to become the flâneuse, a modern female incarnation of the lover of the city. Her of his is a wake-up kiss onto the sleeping city that awakens it. They are an entertainer, a voyeur, a kisser, a lover… yet they are far from seducing and abusing. Instead, they come as a force that may reduce the crowd to one face or an exchange between two persons carefully selected from that crowd."
