A showcase of work by 30 photographers that collectively create a hymn to love and hope, a sense of community, and of solidarity and empathy. The theme for this open call exhibition was conceived following the universal experience of the impacts of Covid-19 spreading beyond borders and barriers.
When normality crumbled, art and its fleeting and extemporaneous nature became a gift. Its distribution and sharing built and trans-formed interpersonal relations, distracted people from their isolation to allowed them to meet again in a space where loneliness was replaced by the Communitas, a strong feeling of solidarity and togetherness.
This exhibition features 30 photographers selected through the scouting initiative launched on PhotoVogue, the photographic platform of Vogue.it. The works have been selected by an internationally jury consisting of experts from across the world, with different backgrounds and vision so as to try to provide the most inclusive and multifaceted perspective.

In the picture • Shifting perspectives in fashion photography
Curated by Alexandra von Fuerst, Camila Falquez, Nadine Ijewere and Ruth Ossai
Photographs are inherently political, as acts of choosing and displaying them. Fashion photography is layered and complex, a dream factory that is more and more predominantly the preferred stage where collective identities are played and created. Photo Vogue Festival will explore the current fashion photography landscape, by initiating a dialogue among four of its most brilliant minds.
Camila Falquez, Nadine Ijewere, Alexandra von Fuerst and Ruth Ossai are all “contemporary socially conscious fashion photographers”.
They belong to a new generation of artists whose aesthetics are a hybrid of genres, and are themselves a driving force for change. Their work engages in a dialogue with visual arts and journalism, as well as with an assimilated desire to balance out the various levels of representation. The work of Camila, Nadine, Alexandra and Ruth avoids being didactic whilst touching on issues of gender, race, and womanhood, and is simultaneously glamorous, vibrant and powerful. For this exhibition, Photo Vogue Festival 2020 gives space to their vision, initiating a four-way dialogue where the artists are also curators.
