Stories, which the authors of the photos sought to convey, make us think, analyze and search the depths – such is the 20th photo exhibition of the Den newspaper, presented on May 22 in Lviv Polytechnic.
Almost two hundred works in four sections – Politics, Ukrainian World, Photo with History and The World through the Eyes of Children – this is «honest conversation about life».
Welcoming the guests at the opening of the photo exhibition, Andrii Yatsiv, Deputy Director of the International Institute of Education, Culture and Diaspora Relations at Lviv Polytechnic University, emphasized that these 20 exhibitions have included 135 shows in large and small cities of Ukraine and represented more than one and a half thousand photographers and hundreds of thousands of spectators.
– I express my gratitude to Larysa Ivshyna, the Editor-in-chief of the Den newspaper, for choosing Lviv Polytechnic. It is really a great honour for our university. We always care for people in the photos. After all, photography is more than art, and due to these photo exhibitions we can go deeper into them, emphasized in his speech Professor Yurii Bobalo, Rector of Lviv Polytechnic University.
Among the invited guests there was Andrii Moskalenko, the Deputy Mayor of Lviv for Development. He expressed his gratitude to the Den newspaper team, due to whose work readers can learn about important events, people and moments. He handed Larysa Ivshyna a gift coin depicting Saint George, the patron saint of Lviv, emphasizing that Mz. Ivshyna is not only in the supervisory council of Lviv Polytechnic, but in the supervisory council of Lviv city as well.
The meeting continued at the Tech StartUp School. Here gathered young people, among whom there were many future journalists and fans of the Den newspaper. The intellectual conversation concerned the fundamental principles and the main historical figures and events that were included in the books of the editorial board.
