There is nothing permanent except change! Social and Political Changes in East-Central and Southeast Europe Photographs may capture special moments for eternity, moments, which were changing something, or maybe not. Some photographs keep us busy – were they taken spontaneously or not? Sometimes the meaning of a snapshot does not become obvious straightaway, but years or decades later. Photographs are witnesses to history. Our society changes permanently, or, as Heraclitus said: There is nothing permanent except change. Currently, there is a lot of social and political change in Europe, especially in countries of East-Central and Southeast Europe.  The transformation in the political landscape keeps going. FOMOSO calls for photos showing social or political changes, for example photos of demonstrations, rallies, but also buildings, districts, places, scenes, where social and/or political change happens, graffiti about actual subjects of change and so on.
