“Urban & Human Empathy” is the first photographic project launched by Exhibit Around, centered on the human presence immersed in the urban context. A theme focused on the City, which offers to the authors great expressive possibilities. Guidelines given to photographers were suggesting images of “lights and shadows, colors and grayness, frenzy and relaxation, history and modernity, opulence and misery. Contrasts that shape people’s lives. The city is surrounding us, influencing us, constraining us. Anyways, at the same time, we melt in it. Key element of “Urban and Human Empathy” is Mankind absorbed into the urban fabric”.
The project also involves a tour of international exhibits. The last, in Trieste Airport, will be open until December 10, 2017.
