The second edition of the Photo Vogue Festival will open in Milan November 16-19, 2017 engaging the entire city with talks, exhibitions and photography-related initiatives made possible also thanks to the contribution and support of cultural institutions, photography school and, most of all, thanks to specialized galleries that will host exhibitions over the duration of the Festival. PVF – Photo Vogue Festival – seeks to establish itself as a meeting place and point of reference for all photography, art and fashion enthusiasts by giving professionals and amateurs alike the chance to come in contact with key industry figures: the most renowned photographers, leading curators and the most prestigious agencies.
Headed by Senior Photo Editor, Alessia Glaviano, this year’s Photo Vogue Festival will feature a monographic exhibition on master fashion photographer Paolo Roversi to be held within the prestigious location of Palazzo Reale, promoted and produced by Vogue Italia in partnership with Comune di Milano – Cultura and Palazzo Reale and made possible thanks to the unconditional contribution provided by Mediolanum Farmaceutici SpA.

In addition, the industrial converted space of Base Milano will host two group exhibitions: Fashion & Politics in Vogue Italia, which explores the way through which – despite attracting criticism and controversies – Vogue Italia addressed current social issues through fashion photography, and an exhibition dedicated to those photographers selected through the scouting initiative launched today on our Photo Vogue platform open to all photographic genres, from still life to documentary, fashion to architecture.
