Most of the photographs from exotic countries, capturing the lives of people and animals, were taken in 1990s. In some cases the pictures are almost two square meters in size. Among the photographers are professionals like James L. Stanfield, Joddi Cobb, and the recent winner of the World Press Photo award, Michael Nichols.

The exhibition (open Tue-Sun 9:00-15:00) will run until May 18. Tickets cost Sk50 to 75.
