“Let’s travel again! It is to be understood both as a wish and as an imperative“. It is with this sentence that artistic director Giacomo Brini announced the sixth edition of Riaperture PhotoFestival.
Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 13 to 29 Ferrara will become a destination for photography enthusiasts, emerging photographers and more famous names, offering its spaces, sometimes known other times forgotten, to the now-famous Festival of Photography.
The theme chosen for this sixth edition will be “the Journey” understood and addressed in all its facets: real travel, imaginary travel, travel in space or time, but also travel made with imagination. It is no coincidence that this topic comes after two years in which many have had to give up traveling and has been chosen to transform Riaperture PhotoFestival in the first stage of a longer adventure.
“The invitation is to move, in the middle of this spring, towards Ferrara, in those places that are the custodians of curiosity and beauty, in search of inspiration for the next trips to be made, closed for too long in a drawer. […] We would like you to come back from the PhotoFestival with a finger on the world map, a notebook full of notes and many traveling projects that can satisfy this vital need”. – Giacomo Brini
As every year, Riaperture has opened its national photo contest through which professional and emerging photographers, but also self-taught and simple fans can propose a shot or an entire project always following the theme of travel. The winners will exhibit in a group exhibition within the Official Circuit of Riaperture. The Open Call to participate will remain open no later than Wednesday, April 20, visit the dedicated page for all the information and mark your calendar from May 13 to 29, the destination is Ferrara.
