Voices from Italy


The project is taking place in 2010 and is curated by MICRO, photographers’ collective.
The project takes inspiration from Stuart Pilkington’s projects about USA and England : we are grateful for his permission to borrow his idea and for his help.
The project has been followed in Sweden as well and it is slowly spreading around the world.
The 20 photographers mentioned on the right are taking part in the project and each of them will be representing one of the 20 regions in Italy. Their goal is to represent their own style of photography as well as their nominated county. Some live in the region they represent, some were born there but left it, and some are discovering or rediscovering it for the first time.
Each months the photographers will have complete freedom as to how they respond to the following assignments:
People, Habitat, Work, Landscape, Commonplace, The Italian Miracle.
By the end of 2010 the 120 images submitted over the course of the year will hopefully help to hear some Voices from a Country that too often is associated with hundreds of commonplaces and not represented in some of the beautiful or hard truths that remain hidden. Our purpose is not being exhaustive but arousing curiosity for a different point of view.
