Mythography is back! For the second year we are happy to launch the photographic project that pays homage to Greek and Roman mythology!
Conceived in 2021 by the dotART and Exhibit Around APS associations, Mythography is a series of collective photographic books freely inspired by the gods of the Greek / Latin pantheon that lead to exhibitions and talks in the international setting of Trieste Photo Days.
After the first volume dedicated to Mars, Saturn and Neptune, Mythography II will be produced in 2022, focusing on the figures of:
- Apollo, god of the Sun and Art, representing the themes of colour and light, fine-art and abstract photography
- Pluto, god of Shadows, symbolising night photography, black & white, shadows and silhouettes.
We are therefore looking for photographers interested in submitting single photos and/or projects/portfolios/series freely inspired by a theme/style of their choice among those represented by the deities Apollo and Pluto.
Selection is open from 19 April to
22 May 29 May 2022 NEW DEADLINE on our user area. Registration is completely free, as well as the participation to the project in case of selection.
Special guest of the book and of the exhibition is a master of Italian photography history: Nino Migliori.
The book will be edited and introduced by Enrico Medda, professor of Greek Literature at the University of Pisa, who has already worked as a scientific consultant on the first volume of the series.
The best photos and projects will be included in the volume Mythography II, which will be presented during the opening weekend of the Trieste Photo Days festival (end of October 2022), with a conference in which Nino Migliori and Professor Medda will also take part.
