Photography exhibition: Visage(s) d’Europe

For the fifth year running, an open-air exhibition in the heart of Paris showcases the creativity of European photographers. Joakim Kocjancic is representing Sweden with his series titled Europea.

Cities combine in a single metropolis—Europea—where borders dissolve and attention shifts towards humans. This series depicts a Europe that is open: a continent where borders are created by people, not nature. At the same time, it’s people who have crossed the borders. Joakim Kocjancic shows city-dwellers against the background of the cityscape. Crowds, architecture, chaos and traffic are at the centre. With his black and white pictures he tries to create a sense of order and balance in the tumult of city life, giving an inner reality to the frontier between dreams and reality.

This exhibition is the latest edition of an event first held in 2019 where European cultural institutions in Paris, all members of the EUNIC group, look at Europe through the artistic scenes of their respective countries.

Produced by EUNIC France in partnership with Paris City Council.
