The project “Zero Fucks Given” is dedicated to the idea of internal exclusion and of concentration on the phenomena of external objective reality.

Uppermost in the author’s mind was to search for the tools and creative methodologies able to embody her commitment to the philosophical escapism reflected in the very name of this project, the main objective of which is to shift focus from a space of virtual information to one of objective objects and phenomena emanating from the real, material world. Digital photography possesses a wide range of opportunities for internal philosophical discourse, and, as such, has become the primary instrument to realize the stated goals of the Anna Dobrovolskaya-Mints Project.

The cosmogonic landscapes with a fair share of sentimentalism reveal one side of the main plot - philosophical escapism, a strategy of avoiding direct reflection of informational overload and rethinking the functions of time.

Another side of the project is newsfeed and social network clips that form contemporary "informational space" creates that deep contrast between serenity space photographs, giving the feel of inner tension, questioning about that thin line that divides the digital and real space.

The limited-edition project book, as well as the very first copy of each photograph, will be available to buy at the exhibition.

Anna’s debut is supported by ALPA with photograpic equipment.
