The Epiphanie/03 exhibition is the end of a journey that is not only professional but human, an exercise in observing reality that cannot be separated from observing oneself.
The projects of the seven photographers arise from an urgency, which finds in photography not only a technical medium for restoring the image but an introspective tool, in some cases therapeutic. The relational dimension that acts as the backbone of the whole laboratory emerges on the whole: relationship with the subjects portrayed in the photographs, with whom a relationship of exploration and knowledge is established that leads to the final result, but also and above all with the companions of the adventure. Antonio Biasiucci is the one who ignites dialogue, makes it possible in a horizontal dimension where the exchange is continuous and therefore always formative. It will be for this reason that, despite the absolute diversity and independence of individual research in terms of subjects, themes and approaches to the photographic medium, some suggestions return from one project to another in a game of assonances that returns an organic picture, understood here just as an organism whose parts complement each other. Common traces declined in different ways, but useful to outline a possible path. There is, for example, the relationship with the sacred and the supernatural, which is expressed in the dimension of the rite. Above all, the ever-present tension between the individual and the universal, the micro and the macro, the personal and the collective.
