The Festival of Ethical Photography is an annual event held in the old town centre of Lodi by the Gruppo Fotografico Progetto Immagine.
The seventh edition, programmed at the weekends between 8th and 30th October 2016, offers the customary full calendar of exhibitions and events, but also some important innovation intended to reinforce what has always been the mission of the Festival, contained in the subtitle when photography speaks to the conscience.
On the programme are, eighteen exhibitions, two days of portfolio readings, many meetings with photographers and professionals from the industry and guided tours, in addition to the award ceremony of the World.Report Award | Documenting Humanity 2016, the exhibitions of the OFF - Fuori Festival 2016, and much more.
FPmag is once again a media partner and, through this page will tell you about the Festival of Ethical Photography in 2016 from its own point of view.
