Since 1994 the communication research center of Benetton Group has explored photography in all its aspects, from journalism to publishing, advertising to art. Not to mention the seminal experiment of the magazine Colors, with its focus on social, political and lifestyle issues.
The red thread has always been a focus on young international talents, who at Fabrica have had a chance to grow, before often going their own way in successful professional careers.
With Up to Now. Fabrica Photography, Fabrica offers a varied overview of over 20 years of visual research, during the European Photography Festival. For Reggio Emilia Fabrica has selected 37 photographers (including Pieter Hugo, James Mollison, Mikhael Subotzky, Lorenzo Vitturi, Kitra Cahana and many others) and over 100 works. The show concentrates on young talents who have become internationally acclaimed photographers.
