Photographers are invited to submit 1 up to 3 photos addressing the theme.
Group Exhibition in Rome. October 2023
The Forgotten Places call will collect photographic works that will constitute an exhibition/exploration excursus of abandoned, forgotten and rediscovered places, which will lead to a reflection on environmental, historical/social aspects and individual memory.
With the advent of photography, a new documentary approach intervenes in giving a testimony of human kind, through the direct recording of behaviors, but also through the traces they leave.
One of the most representative approaches in the photographic world is that of the phenomenon of Urbex – Urban Exploration – an activity of exploration of abandoned places, its objective being that of documenting the history of those who have lived there, through traces and objects which seem to be fixed and frozen in time.
A further focus of the exhibition is to shed light on the evocative charm of places where nature makes itself manifest by redeeming its spaces, asking questions and offering opportunities for reflections on our relationship with the environment, starting from the need for a more organic relationship with it.
Forgotten Places are also those personal places that pertain to each of our biographies, places that require a return to observe the images of our memories with new eyes, or to rekindle memories of an experience in order to better understand who we are.
