12 July – 21 Sept 2015 Rossinière
High Altitude photography in the mountains
SEE YOU AT THE FESTIVAL!
Every other summer the village of Rossinière in the foothills of the Alps, situated at the symbolic altitude of 1000 meters, presents 12 exhibitions of contemporary photography, housed in rustic sites that evoke the past ways of life of this mountain village. far from presenting picture-postcard views, however, Alt. +1000 proposes a journey through the work of contemporary photographers, poetic, documentary and artistic.
The CALAMITA/À project is a tool for investigating a territory which, through organized research, wishes to explore the changes in progress, generate questions, reveal critical points and attract interest and awareness concerning a crucial place that is still being defined. Territorial morphology, orography, infrastructure, architecture and social context are all elements for broadening the analysis. Art, sociology, urbanism and photography contribute to the definition of the project through an open, multidisciplinary approach. This plurality of visions is aimed at transforming the territory in question into a laboratory and space for privileged observation.
CALAMITA/À produced a newspaper with our exclusive interviews that will be shown during ALT + 1000
