ENGLISH – RULES & DESCRIPTION
Social life is full of BOUNDARIES: material and cultural
Demarcation lines – more or less finished – that make us visual and active protagonist of our life and of other’s life.
Boundaries as limit, as border, as distinction line: a symbolical, cultural, social and linguistic line, but also a space for possible integration, a space that put in communication two or more worlds, that put into contact different cultures, or where fights come out.
Photography allow us to read and narrate those unifying places, places of contact and interface, places of belonging or of not-fitting. Photography helps in describing light zones that meet with those of shadow, it helps in put into question the boundaries between freedom and oppression. Our boundaries: those tangible, hypothetical, cruel, liable, dreamy, ironical, those which have not a physical representation.
Those boundaries we wish to tell about, those we want to shoot.
in the context of Fotografia (www.fotografiafestival.it) International Festival of Rome – April/May 2007 and moving from our previous experience with Urban Gaze ( http://www.flickr.com/groups/italiancities/ ) International exposition “Hugo Pan” held in May 2006, this pool wish to launch and promote:

The topic is the following:
BOUNDARIES (SOCIAL, CULTURAL, POLITICAL)
Our boundaries: those tangible, hypothetical, cruel, liable, dreamy, ironical, those which have not a physical representation. Those boundaries we wish to tell about, those we want to shoot.
