On Sunday the 30th of October we will be pleased to host a special evening within Festival della Fotografia Etica: among the talks of the closing day of the festival, we will be in Lodi with Nausicaa Giulia Bianchi and Linda Dorigo, to have a public talk about the relationship between photography and religion.
Together with the photographers we will discuss various topics around the experience of religion as a means of encounter and exchange between people.
Nausicaa Giulia Bianchi, who’s already been our guest for a #PhomTakeover - will tell us about how she went through her project Hai dato alla Vergine un Cuore Nuovo (“You gave the Virgin a new Heart”), a series about feminine priesthood, both on a technical and an emotional level; Linda Dorigo will instead talk about the development of Rifugio, (“Shelter”) her long term project about christian communities in Asia, that we already presented in our section Segnali.
Two different photographic approaches reveal stories of religious identities that trigger various reflexions on political, social and personal implications: therefore we are delighted to present the two authors to the Festival della Fotografia Etica’s audience.
We’ll see you on Sunday the 30th of October at 6.00 pm in the Sala Granata of the Biblioteca Laudense, Via Solferino 72, Lodi.
