Imago originates from an open call launched at the beginning of Fall 2019 Semester to all the LdM Photography students. The best photographs have been selected based on the quality of the image, the creative process and the originality of the idea.
From landscapes to food and fashion photography, exploring the worlds of digital, classic and fine art, Imago visually represents the connection between the photographers and their experiences during their time in Florence. Through their artworks, students condensed fragments of their life within the imaginary space of a photograph; landscapes, food styling, portraits and photomontages provide glimpses on personal, contemporary tales.
The exhibition Imago offers all LdM students and faculty members an opportunity to look at the outcomes of the Photography department, in the form of student artworks that have been selected for their technical excellence and expressive power. It also encourages Photography students to reflect on their personal and professional growth throughout the semester, while giving them an opportunity to showcase their abilities at the LdM Gallery, in the very heart of Florence.
