The event, organized in an elegant exhibition space, allowed visitors to admire, for the first time in Bucharest, 93 photographic works by some of the most famous photographers in the world.
After a brief musical journey, supported with much dedication by soprano Rodica Anghelescu, accompanied by pianist Angelica Todea, followed a presentation of the exhibition made by Mrs. Lidia Obeada, representative of the MAI Cultural Center, which emphasized not only the importance of this true cultural act but also the interest of the institution that it represents to support the artistic act in all its forms.

As a sign of appreciation for the involvement in organizing the exhibition, the director of the Cultural Center of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Mr. Alin Avram, gave the speakers a diploma and a very beautiful commemorative medal, receiving, in turn, the most important marks of appreciation from the Global Photographic Union.
