Edward Olive has been nominated judge of one of the most prestigious photography competitions in Spain.
Three of Edward Olive's pictures will be included inthe collective art photography exhibition Third edition for Fotox1000, the biggest collective photo exhibition of Rome, featured for two years in FotoGrafia, the International Festival of Photography of Rome, thanks to its new and fresh way to participate and to meet people through photography. In two year hundreds of photographers from all the world, both professional and amateur, got engaged with the topic of the exhibition, the same one of the festival, with more than 40 nations participating, in a mix of different visions with a common soul.
The topic: Motherland
The theme of the exhibition aims to tackle the unique relationship established between photography and the land, in the deepest and most intimate sense of the word, based on a genuine analysis of the close relationship between the photographers and their belonging to a place, and in many cases their actual identification. It is the result of an increasingly pressing need to seek one’s “motherland”: everyone responds in their own way, examining lands that belong to them, whether they are old or new, large or small, real or virtual, with a completely personal documentation, which is the fruit of their life and the need to return or move away. Motherland is a theme that is investigated and propagated by photography, and today we seek it in relation to the creation of constantly new identities in a world that has been completely explored and technologized, but in which the need to investigate new “lands” and to seek one’s own, is a prominent recurrent theme.
The exhibition will open on September 23, 2011, and it will be hosted for three weeks during the period of the festival FotoGrafia in 42mm, a dynamic 120 square metres space dedicated to photography with pose room, courses room and exhibition halls managed by a group of competent and enthusiastic photographers. Later on the exhibition will be hosted in other locations, both in Italy and abroad. Who would like to host it or a part of it can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org for the details.
The first edition of the exhibition was hosted in 2009 by Sala 1 gallery in Rome with the participation of more than 400 photographers, without any selections of the pictures, thanks to an open theme such ‘The declinations of Joy’. The second edition, hosted by Rising Love Club and the 79rs Music Club in 2010, had as topic ‘Futurspectives. Can photography predict the future? Is there a future for photography?’, a more complex subject that brought to a more strict selection and to a high quality participation, with more than 125 artists participating, including some of the most talented photographers of the world. Both the exhibitions were appreciated by the public and by the critics and they created a virtuous circuit of photo lovers that have got in contact and are collaborating on other projects.
The curator: Francesco Amorosino
Professional journalist, he writes about art and culture for different newspapers. As a photographer he participated in several collective and personal exhibition, and he won some prizes like the one of Toscana Foto Festival. Together with his personal artistic research he organizes exhibitions and events. Between his last projects there are a series of exhibitions dedicated to the relationship between the Pop Art master Keith Haring and Italy.
This year he organized the 26th Annual Congress of the Forum for European Journalism Students, held for the first time in Italy, that brought to Matera more than 100 young journalists from all Europe, ready to discuss with important Italian journalists. In that occasion he curated the exhibition ‘Photos that change the world’, pictures from Shoot4Change.
Talking about photography, he created and organized for two year FotoX1000, collective exhibition of 1000 pictures from all the world, featured in the program of FotoGrafia, the international Festival of photography of Rome. He is also the curator for Rome of the project of urban guerrilla ‘I Park Art’, a series of temporary exhibitions in public parking slots.
