Special section: The Three of the Worlds project

This year a special section of the exhibition will be dedicated to the ‘Three of the Worlds project’, the first collective photography organized by the curator Francesco Amorosino. Every participant to the exhibition is invited to send some pictures that will compose the big collage representing the Three of the Worlds. To be part of the project you should send: 
one or more pictures of the ground
one or more pictures of roots
one or more pictures of three cortex
one or more pictures of branches
one or more pictures of leaves
one or more pictures of flowers
one or more pictures of the sky (with or without clouds)

Together with the pictures you should say, if possible, where they were taken. All the pictures together will create the big three that represents the union of the nature of our planet. You can send these pictures more the 10 of the main section of the exhibition, or you can send only these ones. If you want you can send pictures of just some of the categories (only ground, cortex and sky, for example).

The topic: Motherland

The theme of the exhibition aims to tackle the unique relationship established between photography and the land, in the deepest and most intimate sense of the word, based on a genuine analysis of the close relationship between the photographers and their belonging to a place, and in many cases their actual identification. It is the result of an increasingly pressing need to seek one’s “motherland”: everyone responds in their own way, examining lands that belong to them, whether they are old or new, large or small, real or virtual, with a completely personal documentation, which is the fruit of their life and the need to return or move away. Motherland is a theme that is investigated and propagated by photography, and today we seek it in relation to the creation of constantly new identities in a world that has been completely explored and technologized, but in which the need to investigate new “lands” and to seek one’s own, is a prominent recurrent theme.

The exhibition

The exhibition will open on September 23, 2011, and it will be hosted for three weeks during the period of the festival FotoGrafia in 42mm, a dynamic 120 square metres space dedicated to photography with pose room, courses room and exhibition halls managed by a group of competent and enthusiastic photographers. Later on the exhibition will be hosted in other locations, both in Italy and abroad. Who would like to host it or a part of it can send an e-mail to photox1000@gmail.com for the details.

The first edition of the exhibition was hosted in 2009 by Sala 1 gallery in Rome with the participation of more than 400 photographers, without any selections of the pictures, thanks to an open theme such ‘The declinations of Joy’. The second edition, hosted by Rising Love Club and the 79rs Music Club in 2010, had as topic ‘Futurspectives. Can photography predict the future? Is there a future for photography?’, a more complex subject that brought to a more strict selection and to a high quality participation, with more than 125 artists participating, including some of the most talented photographers of the world. Both the exhibitions were appreciated by the public and by the critics and they created a virtuous circuit of photo lovers that have got in contact and are collaborating on other projects.
