Today is Yesterday's Tomorrow

From 23 September to 2 October 2022 the second edition of the PhMuseum Days - International Photography Festival will take place at DumBO space in Bologna, Italy. The event is curated and organized by PhMuseum, an incubator of photographic talents, with the aim of becoming one of the most interesting festivals on the European calendar and to contribue in making Bologna one of the reference cities for contemporary photography.

The theme of this edition is Today is Yesterday's Tomorrow, meant as an occasion to reflect on the strong moment of change we are living. The eternal return of history; the need to live the present while recognizing the power of actions and how the future depends on our decisions today; the different points of view we share and the speculative interpretation of reality.

The program includes individual exhibitions, a collective installation, workshops, portfolio reviews, screenings, talks and round tables, performances and a space dedicated to independent publishing.

Portfolio Reviews are an excellent opportunity to meet influential professionals in the field of visual language, and discuss your work with them.

Book your spot now to meet with a select group of curators, photo editors, book publishers and industry experts who will be available both in 25 and 60 minutes sessions. You will have the opportunity to showcase your portfolio, expand your network, getting feedback and practical advice to further improve your photographic vision.
