Talk­ing Cul­ture by Le­ica presents a public pro­gramme to foster the in­ter­ac­tion be­tween artists, cu­ra­tors, pho­tog­ra­phers, and au­di­ences, cre­at­ing a gath­er­ing point for the art­form with talks, pro­jec­tions, screen­ings, and con­ver­sa­tions. Key­note speak­ers in­clude Amer­i­can pho­to­jour­nal­ist Mag­gie Ste­ber, and founder and artis­tic di­rec­tor of Pho­tolux Fes­ti­val, En­rico Ste­fanelli. Mag­gie has worked on cul­tural-his­tor­i­cal pro­jects in 66 coun­tries, and in 2013 named as one of eleven Women of Vi­sion by Na­tional Ge­o­graphic. Mag­gie’s photo book Danc­ing on Fire: Pho­to­graphs from Haiti pro­vides a pic­to­rial chron­i­cle of Haiti and its tu­mul­tuous his­tory. En­rico Ste­fanelli is a pho­tog­ra­pher, cu­ra­tor, and founder of Pho­tolux, an in­ter­na­tional pho­tog­ra­phy fes­ti­val that takes place in Lucca, Tus­cany. Pho­tolux brings to­gether masters, ex­perts, and lovers of pho­tog­ra­phy, with a fo­cus on new and emerg­ing tal­ents and cut­ting-edge artis­tic prac­tices.
