Výstava vznikla na základě dlouhodobé spolupráce studentů v rámci workshopu Uneven Ground. Ten byl jedním z přípravných projektů Fotograf Festivalu. Zahraniční studenti pražské FAMU a HBK v Brunšviku se při něm zaměřili na pojmy jinakosti a setkání. Výstava, pro kterou studenty inspirovaly rozhovory s hostujícími umělci a vzájemná setkání nad jejich studentskými pracemi, byla poprvé představena jako dočasná expozice v galerii Panel s názvem Ty, to druhé já. V průběhu navazujícího semináře na HBK, jehož podobu výrazně ovlivnily okolnosti pandemie covidu-19, byla diskuze studentů dále formována pojetím sebe-percepce a mezioborové výměny ve veřejném prostoru. Vystavované fotografické práce, videa a performance se zabývají otázkami setkávání, překračování hranic a vnímání druhého bez exotizujícího pohledu.

Fotograf Festival pořádá Fotograf 07 z. s. pod záštitou hlavního města Prahy a za finanční podpory Magistrátu hlavního města Prahy částkou 400 000 Kč, Ministerstva kultury České republiky a Státního fondu kultury ČR.
