LIFE in the Time of Coronavirus
The photographic Call is promoted by the Roma Fotografia, TWM Factory, ILFOTOGRAFO, il Festival della Fotografia Etica di Lodi in collaboration with The Walkman Magazine.
The world is experiencing the biggest media epidemic that humanity has known.
A virus, the Coronavirus, has quickly spread from one part of the globe to another, revolutionizing the lives of most of humanity in just a few weeks.
Fear, irony, disorientation, disbelief, anger, fatality, aggressiveness, generosity and many other feelings are moving each of us and entire populations to assume or follow private and social behaviour that is transmitted very quickly by the official media, but above all by the social media that acts as a large and very extensive amplifier in everyone’s mind and emotions.
The isolation of individuals and entire nations produces immediate economic effects, but which still have to be explored from a social, anthropological and emotional point of view.
Roma Fotografia has in its DNA the will and the desire to testify through photography which it divulges and promotes, what photography has always been: the visual instrument that par excellence has narrated with immediacy and power moments of private life and great social events.
Today technology has made this possibility accessible to all. With this awareness Roma Fotografia and the dynamic reality of TWM-Factory wish to transform the infinite feelings and influences that accompany this difficult period, into a great opportunity that breaks down limits, climbs over walls, puts us in touch by recounting and expressing in many different languages, but contextually with a common language, that of photography, everything that is happening in the different countries of the world and among the many people who inhabit it, with the many cultural, social and religious implications that characterize us.
