Stockholm’s Cultural center, the Kultur Huset, it’s worth a visit.

I’ve been there to see the “Painting with camera!” exhibition.

At every bus shed, in our mobiles, in the subway, in the fashion magazine, in daily news, in your Facebook profile… Photography is now an obvious tool to reflect moments of our reality.

The camera’s mechanism and its purpose, i.e. to capture what we can see with our eyes, gave it the reputation as a tool to show our reality.

And while the technology continued to evolve, we learned to use photography to share with more and more people our image of reality.

What defines if an image is real or not? Some young photographers in Sweden took the challenge to paint with the camera. These photographers’ gaze filled their pictures with movements, colours and feelings. A visual discussion about the camera objectively marked its relation to reality and how the tool’s purpose can be expanded. Young people shared their expressions in non-figurative and abstract form, using long shutter speeds and movements to capture a subject.

And I think the result is amazing!


Hello everyone!

I am Efthymia (or Mia, in short), I’m 21, from Greece. I am studying geology and l am very interested in non-formal education and adult education. I love to read, learn new things, do sports, explore my creativity and cooperate with new people.
When a friend of mine told me about this EVS programme in Sweden l realised it was exactly what I was looking for: be a volunteer, live in Sweden and learn how a NGO functions, as I’d like it to become my future job.
I did not have a second thought and l applied. l am very happy for this opportunity and l believe this is a life experience you cannot miss. and l would like to share with you some of my everyday ‘special’ moments.

The main purpose of this blog is to transfer to you my everyday special moments. For example to make you see a beautiful scene that l saw doing my walk near a lake, share a poem with you or recommend you a book , express my feelings for Sweden or make a comparison with my country  and sometimes I am gonna use some quotes to explain my own point of view.

What do you think, will you join me?
