On May 16, 2018, the National Technical University of Ukraine " Igor Sikorsky Kyiv Polytechnic Institute"again accomodates lovers and professionals of photography. Not for the first year in a row there is an exhibition of photos "Drying" - a photo project that gathers more and more participants from year to year on the avenue in front of the main building.
The idea of the project is to exchange photos in real time. Each participant of the event, having been registered in advance, hangs his photo works on a rope using a clip. The goal is not only to show them to the viewers, but also to give the photos to those who liked them. In exchange, you can take someone else's work from other ropes. As a matter of fact, the project has received the name "Drying" thanks to such posting of photos. Participation in it is taken not only by students of Igor Sikorsky KPI, but also by representatives of other institutions of higher education.
The organizers of photo drying are the Student Council of Igor Sikorsky KPI and the Art Space "Tower" and "POLYTECH Print Center". Each time only the number of participants changes - it is constantly growing. So, this time more than 70 participants-amateur who presented more than 700 works decided “to dry” their photos. As one of the organizers of the event a member of the Student Council of the University Mykola Bytyk (TEF) said besides the photo exhibition for visitors there is also a master class of photography outside from the well-known photographer and the owner of the studio "New Ton studio" Andriy Koren and drawing certificates lottery from the project sponsors to study in the photo schools. In addition, everyone can be photographed in a specially organized photo zone.
