We live in an increasingly interconnected world where, owing especially to social media, there is a growing awareness surrounding the fact that ‘global’ cannot and should not translate – culturally speaking – into a levelling of specificities and individualities in favour of Western-centred representational and aesthetic models. In order to contrast the visual homogenisation and the levelling out of thought, we should reclaim diversity and the search for the wealth that can only emerge through plurality.
We hope that Embracing Diversity, the exhibition result of a scouting initiative carried out on PhotoVogue and of the assessment of an internationally acclaimed jury and dedicated to the promotion and appreciation of diversity in all its forms (be it physical, gender-related, geographical or cultural), can contribute to inspire a desire for welcoming and curiosity towards different cultures in favour of a deeper and better understanding of our contemporary society.
