Every month we open a call for thematic online exhibitions, each curated by experimental artists. Of all the proposals that you will send us, we will select 9 proposals to publish in a virtual gallery on our website and social networks.
Chiara Salvi from Alternative Processes has something to tell you:
Joseph Nicéphore Niépce produced the first photograph in 1826, since then, more than 150 different photographic processes have been invented. Traditionalists approach chemical photography with a molecular-like precision in order to obtain the clearest possible result. As of today, Alternative Processes and Experimentalphotofestival want to break these boundaries and combine different techniques and processes, while looking at anything to be used as a potential canvas.
Traditional photographic techniques already offer an infinite number of creative opportunities, so what happens if we start mixing alternative processes? A world of unexpected and dramatic compositional strategies opens up. How can these techniques interact with each other? Are you the artist that selects and incorporates techniques purposefully or do you explore them haphazardly?
Whomever you are, we want to see your work!
