PERUGIA SOCIAL PHOTO FEST
International festival of photography and social therapeutic
Perugia, 14-23 November 2014
Re-create a culture of a society in the image: This is the mission to build through photography, an irreplaceable means to “make visual memory”, which is essential for communicating ideas and cultures of individuals and communities and fundamental tool for communication. Photography as a space where a dwelling is thinking. The need to understand not so much, and not only that, how to photograph, but because, since the value is not in the picture itself, but in the ‘information contained in it, in the process generator.
The photograph can then assume social significance and therapeutic. Thus was born, as a socio-cultural event centered on the role of social and therapeutic photography, Perugia Social Photo Fest which annually presents to the public the Italian and international projects that are developed in the context of Photography social and therapeutic photography. The third edition of the festival organized by the ‘LuceGrigia’ will be held in Perugia, in the Civic Museum Center for Contemporary Culture Palazzo Penna, 14 to 23 November next.

Irina Zadorozhnaia interferes into the thought space by the means of photography, trying to catch the process itself. Photography tries to catch up with the motion, investigating it’s own space and methods of image making. The final mix of abstract and literally read imagery gives birth to a visually saturated attempt to penetrate the essence of thought process and fascinating movement story, which has no answer.

13th December 2014 – 15th February 2015
Alvin Langdon Coburn (1882-1966), a photographer from the age of eight years old, was a perfectionist and an innate craftsman. He mastered the complexities of platinum and gum platinum printing and the autochrome colour process from 1900-1907 before learning the photogravure process from 1906-1909. Working with his own printing press, he produced several landmark publications, London, New York, Men of Mark marrying text and images. A pictorialist, a symbolist, an innovator, he was the first modernist and abstract photographer taking photography in exhilarating new directions about which he also wrote eloquently.
