Camera
ITALIAN CENTER FOR PHOTOGRAPHY
Featured Profile

A project of international scope, undertaken in the autumn of 2015 with a range of private partnerships, CAMERA aims to reinforce its connection with the territorial system ever more: a unique hub dedicated to photography, capable of strengthening the link between Piedmont and Italy with the main centres throughout the world, promoting photography through an open and creative dialogue with artists and institutions.

The aim of promoting photography is aimed at a broad and diversified usership that may be broken down across various typologies, ages and territories. CAMERA, through numerous elements of attraction and interest, from exhibitions to workshops, meetings and ateliers, aims to become an ever clearer point of reference, a place of meeting and exchange for citizens, with a diverse cultural offer for each target category: photo lovers, amateur photographers, professionals and scholars.

Thus, CAMERA is a platform for display, production, archiving, training, meeting and debate all around photography: a place rooted in the territory yet with an international outlook.

  • Tyrone Williams & Madison Dinelle: Chiasm
    Publication
    Ceremony Press
    International

    Many photographers have experimented with the ‘Call & Response’ model of collaboration, where images function like links in a chain – a visual duel, or game of chess. This book, in which these two photographers pair up their photographs, feels more to me like a matching card game. Chiasm describes in biology the point at which two filamentous structures like a tendon or nerve diagonally intersect in an X (more…)

  • Mary Ellen Mark: Encounters
    Publication
    Steidl / C/O Berlin
    International

    The images of American photographer Mary Ellen Mark are icons of documentary and humanistic photography. Focusing her camera on the socially disadvantaged and those on the fringes of society, she told the stories of her protagonists without prejudice. In the context of the emerging women’s movement in the USA during the 1960s and 70s, and as a freelance photographer at a time when print media was suffering its first major crisis, Mark fought her way to the forefront of female voices in photojournalism.
