Unpublished Photo attracts young photographers under 36 from all over the world. The 2022 edition saw the participation of over four hundred photographers from thirty-five countries. The exhibition, set up in the Spazio Maraini of Villa Malpensata in Lugano, presents 24 large-format photographic prints.
The protagonists of the temporary exhibition are four young talents selected by the international jury of the UP22 prize, chaired by the German photographer Hans Georg Berger. The four portfolios presented touch on themes such as environmental degradation, the search for identity and overcoming limits, and the importance of traditions and crafts.
The first prize went to Vietnamese photographer Quan Nguyen Ho, the second to Indian photographer Dipak Ray. Third and fourth place were awarded respectively to Malagasy photographer Tolojanahary Ranaivosoa and Russian photographer Olga Dmitrienko.
The special prize awarded by Artphilein Editions of Lugano, consisting of the publication of a prestigious monographic volume, went to Tolojanahary Ranaivosoa.
