Via Armando Diaz, 27 - Trieste
Saturday 24 October 2020
Italian photographer Valeria Sacchetti with the Journey to the Lowlands project is the winner of the URBAN Book Award 2020, the new section of the URBAN Photo Awards dedicated to extended authorial projects / photographic books.
Journey to the Lowlands, selected by British street photographer Nick Turpin among over 160 projects, is set in rural Emilia Romagna, in a striking black and white.
“A road movie that tells the dream beyond the frontier of the inhabitants of the plain, immersed in a still unknown microcosm, where life flows slowly. Here time is fragmented, blurred, dreamlike and the water has its own music and whispers the stories of the inhabitants. The family ties, the bucolic landscape, the places and the animals: here, in the lowland, everything is connected, everything flows and everything remains.”
The photographic volume Journey to the Lowlands, published by dotART / URBAN, will be awarded and presented at Trieste Photo Days on Saturday 24 October 2020 at 5.45 pm at the Auditorium of the Revoltella Museum, in the presence of the author and Nick Turpin.
