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.

  • Nhu Xuan Hua: Tropism
    Area Books

    Nhu Xuan Hua delved into the power of memories in a piece of work titled Tropism, Consequences of a Displaced Memory. The work gives a face to those tropisms that describe spontaneous and automatic reactions initiated by vivid emotions in response to primarily needs or past events in life. Based on archival pictures from her family, the digital intervention interprets these memories through a new angle, exploring the effect of dissipation generated by time passing and driven by the forces of an inherited memory.
