Echo Meeting in Torchiarolo
Wednesday, August 3, 2016 - 13

From this year the Echo meetings will open to the public and will take root in the territory.
Thanks to the invitation of the Mayor of Torchiarolo, from August 13 to 18, the agency will move for a few days in the small town of Apulia, southern Italy, elected as a temporary venue of its activities.
During their stay the photographers will tell the village, through stories and themes that will make up a large choral fresco, taking up the tradition of the great documentary photography of the territory. Each photographer will work with its personal visual approach, on a specific topic, such as labor, agriculture, industry, environment and landscape, youth dynamics, progressive aging of the population and popular tradition.
In a perspective of taking root and long-term plan, the result of the photographic survey will be displayed in the streets of the town the following year, when Echo will return in Torchiarolo for the meeting, thus creating a virtuous circle between storytelling and presence, between subjects and authors. There will also be public events in which the agency will tell the project and their work to the public and will screen some of the most significant stories made by their authors. A cultural initiative that will bring the people to the languages of photography and information, often difficult to interpret.
The public event will be on August the 14th, 21.30 in Lendinuso, Palazzette della Vittoria.
On Augus 16th we will give a party with the great music of the italian dj Andrea Amici. We wait for you in Canuta, Lecce, at Mosquito Beach Bar, h. 24.

“UN/SICHTBAR – Frauen Überleben Säure” ( IN/VISIBLE )
Monday, June 2, 2014 - 18

In/visible, Exhibition and book, by Ann-Christine Woehrl/Echo
In/visible – It is their scars which make people look at them. They are openly stared at or eyed discretely. Some people look away immediately because they are ashamed or feel awkward or want to forget what they have just seen. It is easier for society not to acknowledge those who are different, to ignore them and thus to exclude them and make them invisible. Therefore, it is not only the visible scars from which survivors of fire and acid attacks and accidents are suffering for their whole life. Above all, it is other people’s reactions to their disfigurements which are pushing them to the edge of society.
