Verzasca Foto aims to promote emerging international photographers and to support visual arts in rural and peripheral areas, by giving free space through connection and dialogues with nature.
Verzasca Foto offers access to different forms of expression and ways of visual storytelling. During the festival main days the audience can enjoy outdoor exhibitions, artists presentations, guided visits, meetings, portfolio reviews,night screenings and live music.
The festival takes place in a mountain valley, made up of small villages of stone houses and surrounded by dense, lush nature. An intimate and informal meeting place where participants have the opportunity to share ideas and points of view.
Over the years, the exhibitions have focused on different themes, but all sharing a profound interest in the human being and his surroundings. The images on show cover international themes, characterised by varied and personal points of view.
Artists with humanistic or conceptual approaches are invited to interact with the territory. Their images, placed in the woods or in the exteriors of villages, establish a materic relationship with the land, merging with the natural surroundings.
