THE «HERO’S JOURNEY» IN TRIBUTE TO STREET PHOTOGRAPHY

Every year Italian cultural association dotART involves photographers from all over the world in publishing and exhibition projects through its platform Exhibit Around. These projects result in photo books and group exhibitions that culminate during Trieste Photo Days, the international photo festival that dotART has been organising since 2014. During its eight editions, Trieste Photo Days has hosted some of the world9s greatest street photographers: Martin Parr, Alex Webb, Bruce Gilden, Nick Turpin and many others, establishing itself as a European reference point for all lovers of urban photography.

Tales of the Unwritten was born with the aim of celebrating urban photography. The project took shape at the end of 2020 with an open call on Exhibit Around. The idea is to create a big collective tribute to street photography, inviting the most important street collectives in activity as special guests of the project: BULB Photos, iNPUBLiC, Observe, Un-posed, VoidTokyo and Women Street Photographers. The open call for Tales of the Unwritten was an incredible success and attracted 5,000 photos and 270 portfolios from over 620 photographers. After careful curatorial work, the dotART staf selects 189 authors from ove continents, who oïcially become part of the project together with the photographers of the collectives. The result is the full-bodied volume you are holding in your hands, from which a major group exhibition will be based as part of the 2021 edition of Trieste Photo Days.

Tales of the Unwritten contains dozens of small and big stories told through street photography: an immediate and real photographic genre that reveals unseen aspects of society, hidden corners of urban spaces, contrasts and contradictions of our time, celebrations of beauty or chronicles of urban decay. In just one word: stories. Hence the title of the project and the idea of structuring the volume in twelve chapters freely inspired by the stages of the
