Locandina completa Incontri 2016

Incontri” is back for its second year of conferences in which Phom creates discussions between photographers, internationally renowned experts and their audience on various topics regarding photography.

After the success of 2015’s conferences, “Incontri” will be held in two of the most beloved venues within Turin’s cultural scape: Circolo dei Lettori and Scuola Holden, which will host talks that will explore the delicate and fascinating relationship between photography and the written word.

There will be four encounters in which we’ll try to understand how images and words have been able to narrate wars, places, travels, and how they coexist in the creation of an editorial product.
Among our guests there will be photographers, journalists, photo editors and writers who have explored and practiced this kind of relationship.

29th of June
Circolo dei Lettori, Via Giambattista Bogino 9 - 8,45 pm

Sabrina Ragucci | photographer and photography critic
Giorgio Falco | writer
Together they will talk about their last collective work “Condominio Oltremare”, a crossroad of stories and images that take place in a desolated Italian well known riviera, during the cold seasons.
The authors will tell us about how to build a hybrid account, originated by the symbiosis between photography and words.

Circolo dei Lettori, Via Giambattista Bogino 9 - 8,45 pm
