New Photography Museum in Turin
Published on Saturday, October 17, 2015 by

cameraTurin’s newest museum, Camera – the Italian Center for Photography, opened on October 1 with two exhibits on the subject of Ukraine, from Ukrainian photographer Boris Mikhailov and French photographer Jerome Sessini. Located in a 2,000-square-meter building in Turin’s historic center, Camera aims to promote the art of photography by helping amateurs become better photographers and helping visitors of all ages interpret and understand the images in its collection. Camera will also put a special focus on Italian heritage and “anonymous, found and family photography,” according to the museum’s website, and hopes to create a sort of digital archive of photographs of everyday Italian subjects throughout recent history.

Camera’s  rotating collection of Italian and international photography will consist of three main exhibitions and five to six smaller exhibitions each year, featuring differing approaches to photography and other media. Camera will also host photography workshops and higher-level courses for both beginner and experienced photographers. Two master classes are scheduled for November 2015, and the current exhibits will run through January 2016.
