dotART cultural association, promoter of Italian festival Trieste Photo Days, launches an open call for the new project Tales of the Unwritten through its platform Exhibit Around.

We are looking for street photographers interested in submitting single photos and/or projects/portfolios. Strictly street photography, of course: visual moments in color or black and white that reveal unknown aspects of society, life stories, hidden angles within urban spaces, contrasts and contradictions, celebration of the beauty or descriptions of the urban decay.

Authors are free to infuse the works with their own stylistic code, as well as to choose the type of photography that is most congenial to them (we prefer street photography, fine art and architectural photography, but in general we like to support quality photography).

The best photos and projects will merge into Tales of the Unwritten, the new original project signed Exhibit Around, which will summit in 2021 and will consist of:


A prestigious photographic volume with the selected works of the participants together with photos from the main international street photography collectives, which will be presented during the opening weekend of Trieste Photo Days (end of October 2021)


A huge international group exhibition with a wide selection of the best photos from the project, which will take place in the dual context of Trieste Photo Days (the very central Sala Veruda, in the heart of the city) and the Photo Days Tour in a Museum nearby

Tales of the Unwritten follows the success of Exhibit Around’s latest projects, which were attended by hundreds of photographers from five continents. After the tribute to Martin Parr Short Street Stories (2019) and the tribute to Alex Webb Chromantic (2020), in 2021 we will pay homage to an entire photographic genre: street photography!
