On the Verge is the new exhibition opening at CAMERA in its Project Room from 4 November 2022 to 8 January 2023. It features a group show investigating the major themes of our time, comprising over 70 works produced by seven young photographers selected from the FUTURES Photography network, of which CAMERA is the only Italian representative in a network of some 20 European partners.
The projects featured by Cian Burke (Ireland, 1978), Mark Duffy (Ireland, 1981), Pauline Hisbacq (France, 1980), Julia Klewaniec (Poland, 1996), Alice Pallot (France, 1995), Daniel Szalai (Hungary, 1991) and Ugo Woatzi (France, 1991) tell personal and collective stories concerning conflicts, struggles for gender equality, food and ecological sustainability, and the rise of populism and nationalism throughout Europe. At the same time, from an aesthetic point of view and in terms of photographic languages, these works represent the most innovative and relevant experiences in the current European photography panorama.
