"I would photograph an idea rather than an object, a dream rather than an idea" Man Ray.

Dear photographers I invite you to the Photolux, an International Festival of Photography entitled Mondi/New Worlds in Lucca. Protected content unique opportunity for cultural enrichment in the perfect setting, where ancient and exquisite sites of the city centre are filled with exhibitions, workshops and talks. Overcome walls, conquer new worlds, this is the starting point for the 30 exhibitions on stage to tell the stories that marked the last century. A very modern theme: the deep and primordial human desire to go beyond the limits, the barriers, the walls, stories speaking of conquests, of paths to change to build a better world. We will admire amazing collections: 02:56 AM. To the Moon and Back’, on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the first man on the moon; Magnum Revolution, documenting over sixty years of history; Abbas: The Iranian Revolution Protected content , an in-depth look at contemporary photography in Iran; The April Thesis, on the Bolshevik leader Vladimir Lenin…..and much more. The plan is to be at the Lucca station at 10.30 and start exploring the festival. The full ticket is 22 euro, 19 discounted, the one location ticket is 10 euro. We can have lunch together and explore more the festival and the beautiful Lucca. There are places available by car let me know if you need a ride, otherwise there is a train at 9.10 from Florence. I hope to see you there
