LHC could be seen as $\gamma\mathrm{+}\gamma$ collider, because of high photon fluxes, which highly boosted protons radiate. As SM predicts, the rare collision between two photons needs to be mediated by some other object (l, q, W$^{\pm}$). The talk gives a short description of, how such things could be modeled, using the FPMC (Forward Physics Monte Carlo) generator and how it could be measured using ATLAS&AFP detector systems.
