CALL FOR PROJECTS! We are searching works for the new edition of Ragusa Foto Festival 2019 which focuses on changes in the constitutive cell of the "social fabric", the FAMILY. Deadline: April 30th
In times of uncertainty, the instabilities that characterize family ties continuously update the boundaries and transformations of our society. People, through relationships of real and virtual proximity, reinvent everyday life and propose new perspectives to family identity, rediscovering forms of reciprocity. Paradoxically, the most fragile families are those that practice solidarity and build social humus. Globalism also generates cross-national issues, such family abandonment fed by economic prospects and conflicts. Or geographical local tensions dictated by fear, lack of integration and resources, conservatism. We are facing a crisis of knowledge that also requires the arts and photography to question the world differently, to build narratives that produce a reflection on meanings, interconnections, rather than descriptions of what we already know. Even discovering that new forms of coexistence are already happening, and producing more sustainable forms of housing and living, and therefore evoking possible alternative futures.

In 'Immediate Family' Mann photographs her own three children, Emmett, Jessie, and Virginia, during warm weather over a period of seven years, in and around the family house in rural southwestern Virginia. The children wear bathing suits or light summer clothes or no clothes. The photographs are beautiful and strange, like a dream of childhood in summer. (by Janet Malcolm, The New Yorker, 1994)

Every day we wake up there is an opportunity to run with the wind. The opportunity to take life by the horns and dominate. Not every action is large in nature and most often it’s the small actions that collectively animate the bigger picture you’re looking to achieve. What are you doing today that’s going to make your tomorrow better for you? #ritaslanina
Il parere dei Bianchi riguardante la prova sexy Rafael Vs Vincenzo. Voi siete d'accordo con loro? Io no. Ognuno ha i propri gusti, e io sinceramente ho preferito Vincenzo. Poi Rafael si è giustificato dicendo che Vincenzo non ha fatto bene la parte della sedia e quindi non meritava il punto... Caro la gente da casa vota un ballerino/cantante se quest'ultimo lo emoziona e non per la tecnica (non ho nulla contro Rafael però per sta volta secondo me non ha ragione). GIUDIZIO PERSONALE. @vincenzodiprimofficial#amici18#amici#vincenzodiprimo
