The idea of fences as an alternative platform for exhibitions came into existence as part of the photoproject to the city’s anniversary “Nerekhta in the Subjective” (2011 – 2014 year). The first photo fence in the town was created by the professional photographers and children who participated in photo schools. The success proved that the idea was brilliant and thel fences really attracted attention. In August 2014 Nerehta celebrate 800 years. The International photo fence will present the city.
