The PEP project aims at exploring the photographic language in all its aspects, photography being here considered as a way of communication using its own visual elements as pieces of a particular vocabulary. Each element of this “visual lexicon” constitutes a theme in itself, further explored by various artists who ultimately show the result of their work in a collective exhibition. The aspect of the collectivity is central to the project: the plurality of perspectives allows to open each theme to new ways of interpretation and reach a wider and more creative approach.
The goal indeed is not to create a strict taxonomy of the photographic language by making a list of hermetic criteria, but rather to invite the participants to explore the themes in a free and personal way, opening the subjects to the most diverse interpretations likely to challenge the common ideas usually associated with them. And by doing so, revisiting the photographic language together to create an expanding and innovative visual lexicon.
