If the task of documentary photography is to capture events on the spot, then in the case of virtual events we inevitably have to think about how to be present and how to reflect what is happening there through photography? What are the commonalities between the real and virtual worlds? What are the possibilities and limitations? How to apply photo theory in a virtual environment. The expansion of photography into virtual environments does not yet have a theoretical context, and the aim of the master’s thesis will be to start this dialogue.

The exhibition presents photographs of concerts held in various virtual environments, and I formally use concert photography techniques.

The works have been completed with the support of the Estonian Cultural Endowment.
