For the second consecutive year, the city of Milan take the role as the capital of Photography with seven immersive days called the Milan Photo Week.
From 5 to June 10 the city of Milan will pulse with courses, workshops, exhibitions and meetings geared to make the wider public, young and old, more familiar with professional photography. The event features over 170 events-within the event enabling expert photographers and those wishing to deepen their knowledge of photography to experiment, admire iconic shots and understand the various techniques behind pictures, as well as taking part to important exhibitions on core themes of our days.
This edition gives voice to photography by promoting lectio magistralis and different dialogues about the role of photography as a principal tool for investigating the contemporary, thanks to the precious partnership with BNL Gruppo BNP Paribas and the collaboration with Internazionale and World Press Photo. Furthermore there is a great attention also to educational projects: a full scholarship offered by MPW to 10 young photographers from around the world, realized thanks to the contribution of BNL Gruppo BNP Paribas and the partnership with Magnum Photos and La Triennale Milano, and also a project on night-time Milan dedicated to varius photography schools in the city created in collaboration with Samsung.
The programme includes a joint project for portraits of milanesi by 30 photo-artists from Milan, workshops for children taking their first steps in the art, an installation where architecture and photography intersect, as well as an exhibition by leading African photographers. The main hub for Photo Week is Palazzo Reale, though the event involves other important locations in the city such as GAM – Milano, BASE Milano, La Triennale Di Milano, Palazzo Litta, Museo Di Fotografia Contemporanea, Fondazione Stelline, Armani/Silos, Fondazione Prada, Frigoriferi Milanesi, Istituto italiano di fotografia, Musei Vaticani and many others.
