Happiness On The Move 2017: the winner

Pierfrancesco Celada is the winner of the 6th edition of the Happiness On The Move International Award, organised by Cortona On The Move in collaboration, for the fourth consecutive year, with the Consorzio Vino Chianti and the Media Partnership of Pagina99.

Class of 1979, Celada is the first Italian photographer to have claimed the victory thanks to Instagram Pier, Hong Kong, a work carried out around Sai Wan Pier, the industrial jetty located in the western part of Hong Kong Island. Here Hong Kongers and Instagrammers meet in fact to shoot selfies and stage photos, and it is precisely their habits, their gaiety and perhaps unconscious rituals that they repeat, transforming them into images, expressions, poses and situations, the fulcrum of the author’s project. A project that to enter in assonance, could only have been created with Instagram.

As stated in the motivations issued by the international jury, composed this year of Elena Boille (Internazionale), Krzysztof Candrowicz (Triennal of photography Hamburg), Antonio Carloni (Cortona On The Move), Alice Gabriner (Time), Anna Iuzzolini (Pagina99), Sarah Leen (National Geographic), Elisa Medde (Foam), Ute Noll (Du magazine), Arianna Rinaldo (Cortona On The Move) e Scott Thode (Visura): «Pierfrancesco Celada's project on the Instagram Pier refers directly to that sense of vitality, Joie de vivre, that fragment of joy that you yourself define and decide. It hints at the most ordinary and subtle aspect of happiness, sometimes just a fleeting instant. A simple, perhaps even superficial expression of joy, the ritual of the Instagram Pier recounts our contemporaneity and at the same time lights up a smile».

The award-giving ceremony will take place on Saturday, 15th July 2017 in Cortona during the inaugural days of the seventh edition of Cortona On The Move. Pierfrancesco Celada’s work will then be part of the exhibition programme of the next edition of the festival. This year, the event will host Klaus Pichler's work Golden Days Before They End, the winner of last year’s edition. His exhibition, produced by Cortona On The Move and hosted at the Fortezza del Girifalco, will be inaugurated on Friday 14th July 2017 at 7.30 pm.
