Rome, Fotografia - International Festival

The International Photography Festival in Rome reaches its 10th edition this year with a project that confirms the event’s growing national and international prestige. Its purpose is to promote contemporary photography in its different forms and languages, and also to support new talents at national and international levels.

The theme of this edition is MOTHERLAND investigated by Alec Soth, Tim Davis, Guy Tillim, David Spero, Leonie Purchas, David Farrell, Tod Papageorge, Paolo Ventura, Antonio Biasiucci, Anders Petersen and Guido Guidi.

The festival, curated by Marco Delogu, aims to stimulate an analysis of the relationship between land and identity and connections between photography and territory. Each photographer has responded in their own way, examining the lands that they can relate to, each with a personal documentation.
