This year we open the 5th edition of the International Salon of Artistic Photography for Physicians PhotoArtMedica2017. As the organizer – District Medical Chamber in Częstochowa, Poland - we are glad that with each year the community of photography enthusiasts among medicians and that more and more Colleagues wish to share their photo-emotions. We are glad that with each year the group of photography enthusiasts in the medical community is getting bigger. In the previous editions of the Salon 215 participants from 22 countries took part - Australia, Austria, Brasil, Canada, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Lithuania, Palestine, Poland, Romania, Russia, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine and USA. We expect this number to grow with each future edition of the PhotoArtMedica Salon.
The leading theme of this year's edition is, next to the free theme, nature. In the surrounding and overwhelming us gradually civilization the world tends to forget about it. That is why it is important to notice it more - its beauty, its significance, the dangers it has to face. And surely it is a way to understanding world - as Albert Einstein said "Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better." Also through the lens of a camera.
We invite you to share your photo-insprations coming from the surrounding nature.
