‘Homo Urbanus Europeanus’ – EU Delegation opens exhibition in Baku

On 20 May, an exhibition by French photographer Jean-Marc Caracci, titled ‘Homo Urbanus Europeanus’, was opened by the Delegation of the European Union to Azerbaijan and the YARAT Contemporary Art Space as part of EU Days. The photo exhibition showcases 27 EU capitals and will be open to the public at YARAT until 29 May.

Kestutis Jankauskas, Head of the EU Delegation to Azerbaijan, said the exhibition reflected European diversity: “The exhibition carries a ‘Yes to Europe’ message, and is a perfect way to celebrate EU Days.”

‘Homo Urbanus Europeanus’ showcases human characters in urban backgrounds. “The human presence, the silhouette captured with finnesse, always in the right place and at the right time, gives the city an unexpected beauty and majesty,” said the author Jean Marc Caracci.

The project started in June 2007 in Bratislava. Until now, the artist has visited 43 European capitals and cities to include them into his photo portfolio. Caracci is planning to visit Baku next year.

The exhibition has been held in 27 countries, including Ukraine.
