The author from Novi Sad brought 57 works of art to Oradea and presented them to the visiting public, describing and telling the story of the beginning of this beautiful family. Vivien is a healthy and happy baby and should be very proud of her parents. The audience was greeted by István Tóth AFIAP, ESFIAP, President of EFANE and Vice President of KMFT, who appreciated Annabella’s bold undertaking and masterful photography of this demanding and difficult exhibition. Art critic Dr. Ramona Novicov highlighted the fact that Annabella had heroically created a particularly difficult moment and produced high quality images of the event. Some of the images, which are for over 18s, can be viewed on the EFANE website: https://eurofotoart.ro/expo-personala-otos-annabella-srb-intitulata-prima-intilnire-cu-vivien/ The exhibiting photographer clarified that after such an event, after more than 24 hours of no sleep, stress, falling and getting up, I could say that I had managed to create the work of a lifetime, and thanked her for the opportunity to exhibit her works in the wonderful EFA Exhibition Centre in the Medieval Castle. At the end of the opening ceremony, István Tóth AFIAP, ESFIAP, President of EFANE and Vice President of KMFT presented the exhibiting photographer from Novi Sad with the EFANE Patronage and FIAP Honorary Diplomas.
