The works on display have been created during the summer semester 2012 at theirrespective universities. Many of these can be seen illustrated in the students’ section of the photomeetings luxembourg 2012 catalogue.

The theme Photography = Fiction? has been explored from many different angles. The main questions revolved around photography’s relationship to truth and analyses the usual filters of perception.

We can see photography’s role as an accurate mirror on the world with its promise of truth telling as opposed to the intriguing conceptual possibility of creating a "photograph" entirely digitally. Working together while trying to develop one’s own style between numerous possibilities - from snapshot aesthetics to the application of cinematic techniques - in order to address concerns, desires and realities of one’s own culture shows a powerful source of creation throughout the exhibition.

Making "photographic magic" happens by transcending moods and themes, structuring and creating fictional stories that express our deepest emotions is this year’s goal.
