We live in a world, a society that is transforming. Respectively, changes also occur on the human level. Both within us and "outside" of us everything is changing. As regards form, look, shape, structure, nature, character, the urban landscape, the man-made environment, the surrounding nature, even man's presence is under constant change due to today's circumstances and particularly technology and new media. Photography, as a reality's "transformation" medium may be the best way to perceive and reflect on what is "changing" yet "looks" unchanged.

20 photography attempts trying to depict all kinds of transformations, either by creating them, or by "capturing" them. 20 photographers presenting the power of transformations either as single images or in combinations, which demonstrate the image's power when being altered, compared or conversing with the environment. Within and outside of the frame, within and outside ourselves, in and out of our everyday routine.
