Since 2017, Pavlovka ArtGallery has held its annual Pavlovka Pinhole Fest: a festival of pinhole photography, with authors from all corners of the world taking part in it. The goal is to unite photographic artists who use this old photographic technique in their work.

Is the only Ukrainian festival that introduces the achievements of the pinhole photography community to a wide audience. National peculiarities are explored, and intercultural contacts made, through the prism of pinhole.

The festival expands the pinhole movement in Ukraine and abroad, presenting this cultural phenomenon to the public, giving artists an opportunity to share their works, and engages young people in photography.

Pavlovka ArtGallery invites you to participate in the fourth international Pavlovka Pinhole Fest!

This year, the theme for the festival is “Love in the Time of Cholera”, drawing inspiration from the magical realism of Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Using photography as a tool of magic realism, we explore intricacies between love and the transience of being, interspersed with the distortion of time, or even, its collapse. We express the emotions and impulses of a human as a social being.

Each of us undoubtedly has something that we love, that holds us steady in this world, even when the flag marking cholera – mortal danger – is raised. And even if this danger has swept the whole world, has changed our usual ways of being, turned everything upside down – let it be. Because there remains something inside, that will not allow our ship to stray.
