Sacred and Profane
The next edition (2015) of Photolux will be dedicated to the eternal dualism between sacred and profane, good and evil, truth and lie, beauty and misery.
On the one hand, through photography we could make a journey that is at the same time an outer journey all around the world as well as an inner one, discovering the sacred placed and experiencing each time a different but always fascinating aspiration to the divine.
On the other side, we could explore less high territories, often considered marginal, morbid or in some way unseemly, facing the worldliest feelings and instincts of mankind.
Without forgetting what stay in the middle, in the nuances of that colour contrasts which can’t be sharp.
Photography as the privileged language to reveal this duality and analyse its possible declinations and interpretations.
