True Stories is the subtitle of the collective exhibition Global Photography, produced by SI FEST and recently presented in Savignano. The brainchild of Stefania Rössl and Massimo Sordi, it is a wide-ranging observatory on the international photography scene, which has become an exhibition of authors from all around the world. True Stories is also the movie directed by David Byrne of Talking Heads in 1986, which was documented with photographs by William Eggleston. As the curators explain in the catalogue, this is not mere coincidence but rather a reference defining the spirit of the exhibition project, on the borderline between true stories and a vision of pure fantasy – true stories or figments from the real world. In their own words: Given the endless number of images that we are constantly presented with as an interpretation of what is happening around us, this projects arises from the knowledge that often insignificant details can reveal to us the most significant meanings. Before Global Photography leaves on a tour that will take it to Russia, of the 18 authors who exhibited 87 photographs and 5 videos in Savignano, MiCamera has selected for the exhibition in Milan 9 authors (7 photographic projects, 3 videos). An opportunity that no one should miss.
