Takes shape “Urban & Human Empathy”, first photographic project launched by Exhibit Around, centered on the human presence immersed in the urban context. A theme focused on the City, which offers to the authors great expressive possibilities. Guidelines given to photographers were suggesting images of “lights and shadows, colors and grayness, frenzy and relaxation, history and modernity, opulence and misery. Contrasts that shape people’s lives. The city is surrounding us, influencing us, constraining us. Anyways, at the same time, we melt in it. Key element of “Urban and Human Empathy” is Mankind absorbed into the urban fabric”.
The project involves the creation of an “urban storytelling” that will be developed through a photographic volume and a series of international exhibitions that will end in the events of the Trieste Photo Days festival in October 2017.
Through an open call launched on March 20, hundreds of photos and projects have been collected from around the world. Because of the high quality of the work received, 51 photographers have been selected.
