The idea is very simple: Every 3 months there is an open call with a certain theme and a guest curator selects the best pictures and “hangs” them on the fridge. The idea of the curated fridge was of Yorgos Efthymiadis in an attempt to celebrate fine art photography and connect photographers from around the world.

Objects, materials, ruins, inanimate things have the power to communicate a story, both through their physical presence and characteristics, and their representation in art. They might not be able to speak the way we do, but they hide a power of communication and influence within themselves. Not in a human way, but in their own …
