Photography is a medium that quickly becomes too much about itself, sometimes
photographers do the same thing. By starting the MINT-Projections two years ago, we decided to try and break down those preconceptions: instead of showcasing our
own works as photographers we slip into the roles of curators and producers,
acknowledging that there is always a right fit of topic and storyteller. The best we
can do is to give a platform to those works. The projections are celebrating diverse
and versatile storytellers, that report on current issues from around the globe. In a
globalised world, we need a globalised visual culture that engages in discussions and
raises awareness. With the Projections, we hope to make you laugh, cry and reflect
about your own role in this world

MINT is a collective of documentary photographers from Germany and Denmark, founded in 2013.
The eight members are united by a strong believe that storytelling,both in editorial works and
personal projects, needs to constantly evolve and challenge itself, with the stories of today becoming
more complex themselves. MINT is about collaborating, sharing and creating ideas throughout the
international photographic community. In order to create authentic and empathic visual representations
we believe that a truly and authentic personal interest comes always first. MINT is AnnaKristina Bauer,
Jens Gyarmaty, Charlotte de la Fuente, Kasper Palsnov, Patrick Slesiona, Felix Schmitt, Mario Wezel and
- (of a process or system) characterized by constant change, activity, or progress.
- (of a person) positive in attitude and full of energy and new ideas.
The show consists of 3 chapters. In the first, we take a look at a fresh initiative that started in Greece very recently, “Vein Collective”, and focuses on sharing intimate-personal stories. In the second we discover a universe of different voices, which all share one thing. They were all born on the same ground; “Common Ground”. In chapter 3; “Inconnu” & “Hidden” we see three different stories of haunting beauty, approached with pure desire, in search for memory, roots and longing.
It is very natural for the viewer to make conscious or unconscious connections with the works you see and the Greek socio-politico and economic scene. My point of view is that maybe as an artist and as a person, someone has to cross some dark corners before reaching the light. Even if an artist’s reaction to this is the creation of an introspective narrative that questions a set of imagery, we see one thing. That there is so much light in it.
