TheDiputació de Girona, through INSPAI, Centre de la Imatge, has selected the photographic project “Stonemasons and quarrymen, in danger of extinction. Menorca’s dry stone landscape, an endangered Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity”, by Anna Lofi, as the winner of the twentieth edition of the 2022 Young Photographers of Catalonia Award.

The report “Stonemasons and quarrymen, in danger of extinction. Menorca’s dry stone landscape, a cultural heritage” has won the twentieth edition of the Young Photographers of Catalonia Award. The author is Anna Lofi (López Figueras), whose project has prevailed over the other works submitted. The Evaluation Commission particularly highlighted the fact that her project links territory, nature and tradition. .

This project consists of thirty high-quality colour photographs that, in the form of a photographic report, highlight the art of dry stone and bring this ancestral technique, which was added to the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity in 2018, closer to the public.

The exhibition can be seen at the Casa de Cultura de la Diputació de Girona Cultura (exhibition hall, first floor), from 4 October to 18 November, from Monday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. It will then become part of the Diputació’s itinerant exhibition programme so that it can be displayed in different towns in the region. A catalogue will also be published.

In addition, the exhibition will be displayed at the Off Festival in Perpignan, FineArt in Igualada, the Imaginary Festival in Castelló de la Plana and the Mirades Festival, in Torroella de Montgrí, among others.

NINETEENTH YOUNG PHOTOGRAPHERS OF CATALONIA AWARD

The nineteenth winner of the Young Photographers of Catalonia Award is “Valid Identities”, by Isaac Flores.

“Valid Identities” is an exhibition of Isaac Flores' photographic exploration of Barcelona’s queer scene. It features images taken between 2018 and 2020 that focus on drag art, transformism and sexual dissidence.

According to the author, “Valid Identities” is a statement and a wake-up call against the intolerance and hatred to which the LGTBIQ+ community is subjected because of the way they are and the way they love and express themselves.
