Lands/Læns: the landscapes by Fernando Guerra

From 21 December 2018 to 27 January 2019

In a moment of important urban transformation, the photographer's eye deciphers and understands the intensity of the processes and changes that are taking place.
Through the lens of the camera, Guerra tells the stratification of the landscape, and reveals the many types of city that Prato is building and holds in its own form: 50 of 600 shots taken by the Portuguese photographer in October 2017.

Becoming spaces, objects in transformation.
A stratification that highlights an architecture that acts as a scene for the daily actions of man, revealing a landscape that is understood as a dynamic interaction between the subjects who live the city and the objects that conform it. Subject and object then become the layers of an urban tale in which the inhabitant is at the center of the space.
The proposed images, divided into six main sessions, form a collective plot of landscapes, in which Prato is told as a city of contemporaneity, as a "manufacture" of a new way of interpreting urban transformations through the lens of ecology, commented the councilors Simone Mangani and Valerio Barberis.

The exhibition, with free admission, can be visited every day - except on Tuesdays - from 10.30 a.m. to 6.30 p.m. Last admission at 6.30 p.m.
The event is included in the Prato Festival 2018 review, project by the Municipality's Department of Culture.
