“Landscapes from a plural world”

 

The project, designed and coordinated by the Association LuceGrigia, Perugia, involves four Italian cities (Perugia, Modena, Catania, Pesaro) in the creation of a social photography project \aiming at investigating the relationship between the “human being and its landscape”, how one affects and generates the other. The geographer Yi FuTuan says: “When the space seems familiar, it means that it has become a place.” Each person is placed in his living space in a position that that merges and creates continuity between the “inner world” and the world around. It is by seeing, hearing, smelling and above all through own emotional experience that a territory acquires a value. The project “Cosmorama” is addressed to people living in marginal condition (drug addicts, mentally ill, immigrants, etc.) and it uses photography as a means for self-exploration in order to acquire and develop new potentials and new perspectives. It’s a new form of therapy that combines the language of the image (shape, color, space) and the relationship with the environment, both urban and rural. The exhibition will be promoted throughout 2014, in the cities involved in the project.
