LuganoPhotoDays 2013 from 12 to 20 October

LuganoPhotoDays’ second edition takes place from 12 to 20 October 2013.

René Burri’s exhibition, Impossible Reminiscences (12-19 October 2013) is the cherry on the cake of the event. The author of the Che smoking a cigar or LeCorbusier in his workshop exhibits, on the occasion of his 80th birthday and for the first time in Ticino, a series of colour images. Virtually unknown to the public, and displayed in chromological order, situations and portraits captured simultaneously with the black & white ones, deliver a unique vision of the creativity of this great Master of photography?s spirit from 1950 until today.

The program of the international festival of photography at 360° provides again the very much appreciated workshops and the conferences. It has been enhanced with a selection of thematic exhibitions, individual portfolio reviews and the presentation of book by emerging photographers.
