A project to celebrate Pier Paolo Pasolini’s cultural and iconographic legacy through photography on the occasion of the centenary of his birth.
Pasolini Photo Days 2022 project will combine photography, literature, re-mediation and moments of encounter, in the international context of Trieste Photo Days and the Photo Days Tour (the setting for events taking place outside the city during the festival).
The best photos collected through the open call will flow into a double photographic volume:
- Pasolini Photo Days 2022 – Special Mythography
Edited and introduced by Professor Enrico Medda, the volume aims to (re)read through photography some Pasolini themes that have elements in common with mythology and the ancient world.
- Pasolini Photo Days 2022 – The Unmasked Face
Edited and introduced by the writer Paolo Patui, the volume will include photos inspired by the iconography of Pasolini’s cinema, in particular the faces and close-ups.
