About the Exhibit
Shapes of Living | Project Living Earth was born from a call launched on April 22, 2021, World Earth Day, addressed to photographers from all over the world. The project aims to tell through images the variety of life forms on our planet, their richness, and, at the same time, uniqueness, and precariousness, to solicit in the public a reflection on the sustainability of natural resources. On display are the works of 25 selected photographers with over 50 works.(Translation by Microsoft Edge browser from their content in Italian)
I would like to express my appreciation to the organizers of the show for being included in it. Although I tried to watch the live-streamed opening talks, I could not understand a word as it was in Italian. I do know, however, from the description on their site that it was “a conversation between Luca Mercalli, an internationally renowned meteorologist, and Domenico Maria Papa, artistic director of Art Site Fest on the relationship between image, media, and ecological awareness.” I hope that they will provide the transcript of the presentation so that we can enjoy it as well. It will also be good to have all the photographs in an online exhibit for all to enjoy.
The Venue, Italgas
The photographs above made it to the show, and the traces of the show I captured include them. If you would like to watch the opening presentation, it is available on Instagram.
The images below are the scant views from the exhibit taking place at Heritage Lab, Italgas, in Turin. I was able to capture a couple of screenshots that showed my name and one of the photographs that followed. One photograph they shared on Instagram showed another one of my photographs hanging on the right.
I found a couple of more views from the exhibit at the Heritage Lab on LinkedIn. (11/27/2021)
I would also like to give you a glimpse of the extent of this collection in a slideshow I created many years ago. Enjoy!
Finally, today is Thanksgiving Day here in the US. Happy Thanksgiving to you all and remember that despite many problems we may face, there are still many things we should be thankful for.
