On Saturday April the 8th, the Vesuvian city held the second edition of Slideluck Naples, confirming a much awaited event for both the photographers and the Neapolitan public.
The event was hosted by Magazzini Fotografici, born in the space of a former factory of bags, the Borsettificio Ines, located in the ancient Palazzo Caracciolo d’Avellino in the upper decumanus of the historic center of Naples.
The slideshow was anticipated by an abundance of great food and tasty beers kindly offered by Brooklyn Brewery. Exchanging a chat while sipping a beer is still the best way to spend pleasant and relaxing moments.
The crowd brought typical recipes of Neapolitan cuisine, such as fried pasta or rustic pizza with sausage and friarelli. Many visitors from other parts of Italy and Europe came to Naples for the event, bringing with them delicious dishes like Tuscan cold meats, potato tortilla and more.
At 9pm the projection started showing the the works of twenty photographers, selected by the jury. It was a hard deliberation considering the numerous excellent projects submitted by authors from many different countries. The jury was composed of Roberta Fuorvia and Teodora Malavenda (art and local directors), Amber Terranova (guest curator) and Maria Teresa Salvati (co-curator).
A special thanks to Sasha Taormina (press office), Francesca Bellino (instagram curator), Neo Mag, Frizzifrizzi, Clic.hè, Just Another Photo Festival, Elisabeth Biondi, Igers Naples, Fuori Gamut, Foto Image, Magazzini Fotografici, Slideluck Editorial and of course Brooklyn Brewery.
The success of our event is the result of a team effort in which collaboration and confrontation have been a guide. Until next time !!
