Debate: "On Seeing" - Talking about street

We live in time. Photography has always been asked to select this time; to materialize the moment, the perfection. For many of us, Street Photography is exactly this, an instant of pure uniqueness. In the daily weaving, though, - in confronting an urbanization that attempts ethical reflections, and a present that’s ever more monopolized by social media – single frames don’t count as much as narration and development of a subject in its wholeness. The use of social media, the dynamics of sharing, so rooted into our day, the invasion of technology and a dimension of the news that’s wide open to a reading of the moment and bounced between the antipodes of the globe at a speed earlier unthinkable brings us to reconsider the concept of “genre” itself: while we read the world, while we stop a moment, does it make sense to nestle it in a label, be it streetdocumentary or travel?

Speakers: David Gibson, Massimo Mastrorillo, Gianluca Colla, Augusto Pieroni and Salvatore Matarazzo. Moderator: Sonia Borsato.
