The theme of the Biennial is “Traveling. Journeys of the body, journeys of the mind.”
It is very likely that the restrictions on freedom of movement and the psychological consequences imposed in this period, but also the allusion in the enunciation of the theme to other types of itineraries, contributed to directing the authors’ way of approaching the subject. The idea of travel, commonly associated with moving from one physical place to another, was interpreted by the young participants in a broader way. Applying to the contents of their works a metaphorical, inner, conceptual, imagined conception of travel, attentive to the problems of the planet and the consequences of technology. A characteristic of all the works is their complexity.
As for the Fujifilm Grand Prix, the photographic event, through a series of stages throughout Italy, from May to October, went in search of the most popular photographic portfolios in our area, collecting twenty finalists whose works will then be exhibited in a national exhibition at the CIFA – Italian Center for Fine Art Photography in Bibbiena (AR).
