European Prospects
Exploring European Identity through Photography

Emerging Talents Festival 2018-19

Open calls | 26 October 2018 - 11 November 2018

Emerging Talents is a photo festival devoted to young artists. It will be held at MATTATOIO Museum in Rome from December 7th 2018 to January 6th 2019.  For the 2018 edition, Emerging Talents is launching an Open Call inviting all photographers to present a photographic project about the theme “Interferences”.

Photography can create interferences between meanings and languages, it is a tool capable of actively reading and interpreting the complexity of contemporary society, with its innumerable contradictions and ambiguities, poised between reality and illusion. Photography is a creator of new worlds and it seems to be a revolutionary medium which treasures the incessant movement that intertwines everything and calls it into question: it mixes the arts and gives them matter for reflection, binds documentation to the imaginary, it experiments freely starting from the real to arrive at fiction, it makes digital and analogic dialogue possible just as we are immersed in an epochal transformation, in which we daily look for elements to decode reality.
How do we today express ourselves through images by investigating reality, ourselves, the other?


Deadline: November 11st, 2018
