And with a short intensive worksho in which we will make a series of fanzines from a series of images month provided by the festival.

Four days of talks and exhibitions to talk about vernacular photography, that is, images taken by ordinary (non-professional) people to everyday life situations, for personal use. It is the application of photography to the native, private, village or family dimension, where the goal is to capture a memory or a particular introspective moment.Guiglia International Vernacular Photography Festival does not intend to regret or make people regret the past times, it does not want to compare different mediums to determine which is the best. GU.PHO. simply wants to reflect on photography, its journey, its change, dwelling on what has perhaps not been said or understood.

The event is organized by the Mezaluna Cultural Association of Vignola.
