Photolux 2015: the exhibitions

The Photolux Festival 2015 – Biennale Internationale di Fotografia will open its doors on Saturday, 21st November 2015 in Lucca.
As already announced by artistic director Enrico Stefanelli in the video interview that we issued in September, during the press conference presenting the event (see link at the bottom of the page), the theme for 2015 will be Sacred and Profane and will include a rich programme of exhibitions and events dedicated to «eternal dualism that rule the world, the contrast between sacred and profane, good and evil, truth and lies, beauty and misery that is inherent in the soul of man». An issue both complex and delicate, especially in the light of recent events, which declined through photography allows, in the eyes of the organisers, not only to take a trip around the world, which is at the same time an internal journey, but also «to reread the sacred iconography in a desecrating or provocative key, venturing into territories considered generally not represented, dealing with the more earthly passions and feelings of the human soul and its aberrations. Without forgetting all that is in the middle, in the subtle shades that always colour contrasts what cannot be clear».
We at FPmag will be involved in the event as a media partner, keeping you updated on the evolution of the edition. In the meantime, let's start with the presentation of the 29 exhibits divided into exhibition spaces, which will animate the city of Lucca until 13th December 2015. A list of the works of the authors and personalities from the field of absolute importance – such as the American photographer Joel-Peter Witkin who is the special guest of this edition – as well as promising newcomers.
