In the next few days, we are going to contact the authors that have been selected

We had been working on it since December and now we can finally make it official: Chromantic will be a great tribute to the worldwide famous American photographer Alex Webb, in the wake of the 2019’s tribute to Martin Parr Short Street Stories.
The photographic volume and the exhibition of Chromantic will be presented at the next Trieste Photo Days in the presence of Alex Webb himself, confirmed super-guest of the festival together with Rebecca Norris Webb, his wife and creative partner!
For the occasion, we have decided to extend the call to Sunday 1 March 2020.

Join the new Exhibit Around original project: Chromantic is a unique opportunity for photographers who wish to become part of an important collective project that will be presented in the prestigious setting of Italian festival Trieste Photo Days 2020 in the presence of international guests.

Open call from December 23, 2019 to January 31, 2020 March 1st, 2020 (NEW DEADLINE!) on

dotART cultural association together with Trieste Photo Days festival launches an open call for the new project Chromantic: Light / Color / Memories through the Exhibit Around platform.

We are looking for photographers to participate with single photos and/or projects/portfolios, that use light in an artistic and original way, giving life to the chromatic elements and transforming color into an authorial language able to tell contemporary reality.

The lesson to be inspired is Alex Webb‘s, pioneer of color photography able to range from urban photography to journalistic reportage. Each author is therefore free to infuse his own style in his works, as well as to choose the type of photography most congenial to him (we prefer street photography, fine art and architectural photography, but in general we like to support the photography of quality).

The best photos and projects will merge into a new original project signed Exhibit Around, which will be launched in 2020 and will consist of:

A prestigious photographic volume which will be presented during Trieste Photo Days opening weekend (end of October 2020)

A big international collective exhibition with a selection of the best photos of the project, which will be held during the festival

We will have the honor of hosting in the Chromantic project one or more international photographers that we will announce shortly (in 2019 the special guest of Short Street Stories was the great Nick Turpin, and this time we will not disappoint you).

Chromantic follows the success of Exhibit Around’s latest projects: Short Street Stories (2019), Flowing City (2018) and Urban & Human Empathy (2017), which brought together hundreds of photographers from the five continents.

Higlights from Short Street Stories (2019)

With Chromantic we aim to repeat the great success of Short Street Stories, a project culminated in Trieste Photo Days 2019 with an exhibition-tribute to Martin Parr at the “Sala Veruda”, in the heart of Trieste, Italy, attended by Martin Parr himself.
