Liquida PhotoFestival responds to the urgency of looking beyond 

-

Turin, the city where Enrico Federico Jest built the first camera in Italian history, is ready to host a new festival dedicated to emerging photography and its protagonists.
From Thursday May 5 to Sunday May 29, in the frame of PARATISSIMA and within Torino Photo Days, the first edition of Liquida PhotoFestival will take place, curated by Laura Tota and hosted in the spaces of ARTiglieria Con/temporary Art Center. 

For this first edition, Liquida PhotoFestival will follow the theme “Look Beyond“: the goal is to bring viewers to look beyond, inviting them to have a look capable of juggling the millions of images that we are bombarded day after day and able to dwell on what is really worth.
Today each of us is both producer and consumer of images, which have become to all intents and purposes a universal language, common and understandable to all. Over time we have moved from “liquid photography” to “object photography”. It is in this context that “Liquida PhotoFestival” is inserted with the aim of becoming a point of reference to return the current state of photographic research in its many forms of expression.

To start this reflection, Liquida PhotoFestival will use the help of young emerging photographers who will have the opportunity to present their work.

The busy program of the festival consists of “Liquida Exhibition“, a selection of the best projects candidates, “EdiTable“, a real table on which the public can discover some editorial publications related to photography. There will also be talks, presentations and Show&Tell with photographers, authors and insiders. 

From the exhibition point of view, there will be an additional section “Liquida Grant“, dedicated to the best shots received through a dedicated call that will remain open until Tuesday, March 15th. This additional exhibition content was created with the intention of promoting young photographic talents, giving them the opportunity to establish a collaboration with SelfSelf Books. Visit the dedicated website to discover the rules and all the prizes. 

Liquida PhotoFestival is an invitation to open your eyes to new worlds.
