Fotofestiwal, the annual International Festival of Photography in Lodz, Poland has commenced, showcasing a great selection of European and international artists in two main exhibitions Out of Life and Out of Mind. Along with hosting the usual gamut of workshops and portfolio reviews, Fotofestiwal has invited 1000 Words to curate a slideshow based on contemporary work from three of our featured photographers, who have each chosen music to accompany their own photographs. They are:

JH Engström, Wells, the third part of a trilogy leading on from Trying to Dance and Haunts, an autobiographical account involving mostly himself and Amanda.

Anna Linderstam's The Unheard Contradictions, an exploration of "mental states and conflicts through a performative process".

Viviane Sassen, Flamboya, which is both an attempt by Sassen to evoke her childhood, and more reflexively, questions photography's common properties.

The slideshow starts at 6pm, Friday 6 May at the Centrum Kultury Kreatywnej, Lodz.
