Open call fotografica su Pasolini

Pasolini Photo Days

In view of the centenary of the birth of Pier Paolo Pasolini, Exhibit Around APS together with dotART Associazione Culturale, launch the free open call dedicated to Pasolini's cultural heritage.

The project

The Pasolini Photo Days 2022 project aims to combine the world of photography with that of literature within the Trieste Photo Days international photography festival. The best photos collected will give life to a photographic volume and will be exhibited in a large exhibition dedicated as a tribute to Pasolini, intellectual and artist of the twentieth century.

Who is it for?

To female photographers from all over the world interested in submitting single photos, but also projects and portfolios, focused on Greco-Roman mythology and all its facets.
The participating photographers will have the opportunity to become part of an important photographic volume and to be exhibited in the dedicated exhibition.

The theme

The Open Call focuses on the world of Greco-Roman mythology and its facets. The submitted photos can draw free inspiration from the following themes: non-conformity and transgression (symbolized by Dionysus, divinity of wine and otherness), religion and the sacred, nature and roots and modernity and periphery.

Le foto

Each author will be able to address the theme through the photographic genre he feels closest to, chosen from the following: fine-art, street photography, architectural photography and industrial archeology.
The photographic works must be able to re-read through photography some Pasolini themes that have elements in common with mythology and the ancient world.

The photographic volume Pasolini Photo Days: special Mythography will be edited by Enrico Medda, professor of Greek language and literature at the University of Pisa.

Pasolini Photo Days 2022 was realized with the contribution of the Regione Friuli Venezia Giulia, in collaboration and with the Partnership of CRAF - Research Center and Archive of Photography and Fondazione and the Municipalities of Cormons, Grado, Lignano Sabbiadoro, Sacile, San Daniele del Friuli and Sesto al Reghena.


The call is open to all and registration is free. To submit photos, simply register or access the Exhibit Around user area, select the call Pasolini 2022: Mythography and follow the procedure for Single Photos and/or Projects/Portfolios.
