After a three month long open call for submissions on the topic of Reflections, the international jury has chosen the finalists of the 6th International photography festival Organ Vida. With a contemporary, documentary – artistic approach to photography, the Zagreb audience will see works from Alvaro Deprit (Italy), Daesung Lee (France), Mitar Simikić (Bosnia and Herzegovina), Antoine Bruy (France), Danila Tkachenko (Russia), Lek Kiatsirikajorn (Thailand), Prasiit Sthapit (Nepal), Giovanni Cocco (Italy), Guy Martin (UK) and Egor Rogalev (Russia).

They are Willie Osterman (ChemoToxic), Alnis Stakle (Shangri-La), Olga Ingurazova (Scars of independence), Myriam Meloni (Behind the absence) and David Brunetti (Dreaming of Syria).
