A series of photos of the city life continues the traditions of the project “Satka: City Code”, which focuses on the people of Satka. The exposition includes works of local and guest authors of different genres: landscape, portrait, street photography and others. 

To the second stage of the project, the exposition format has changed and expanded, apart from the portraits of the people of Satka in the central streets now it will be possible to see a more substantive map of the city life. This exposition offers a new way to address recognizable urban areas and people who can be met in there. The exhibition brings together visual notes from different photographers, masters and original authors who build unexpected parallels on the urban canvas. 

Black and white photographs are accompanied by with bright colors associated with the appearance of Satka. This juxtaposition acquaints the viewer with fragments of the life and history of the area, as seen by photographers, and allows them to look at the city with different eyes, the eyes of observers who first visited Satka, or the authors, who know and love the city and its character well. 

The photos were taken in recognizable places, which largely determine the popular image of the city, including Metallurgov Street, Karagayskiy Quarry, Prospekt Mira, the production site of Magnezit Group, 40 Let Pobedy Street and Slavy Square. Being composed of landscapes and plot sketches, the exposition presents the author's collective point of view on the life of well-known points of attraction. Each urban space has its own distinct character, its own history and destiny. They become platforms for long-awaited and daily meetings, places for recreation and work, thus forming complex interlacing of destinies and geographical coordinates on the map of Satka. 

The geography of the space, its history and present are reflected in the faces of all those for whom Satka is sweet home. According to the idea of the project “Satka: City Code”, people, who live in the center of production and culture, forest peaks and South Ural rivers, rich history and new technologies, tell non-verbally about what the city lives today. 

The pictures presented at the exhibition create a diverse, emotional, characteristic code of the native land.

The exhibition takes place in two places: at the Palace of Culture “Magnezit” and at the Palace of Culture “Stroitel”.
