In conjunction with “Il Circolo Fotografico Arno”
“The 6th January 1839 M. François Arago presented at the Academy of Science in Paris
a report announcing the discovery of “photography” by Daguerre.
Hundred sixty-five years have passed since that far back 6th January, and photography has
had a development Daguerre could not even imagine.
FIAP “Federation International de l’Art Photographique” wishes to remember and to
celebrate this great anniversary with a project called “Friendship and Solidarity”.
The wish of the FIAP Directory Board in presenting the project “Friendship and Solidarity” is
to realise an event that upholds the fundamental principles of the International Federation:
“to develop and to promote the Photographic Art in an atmosphere of friendship and
fraternity among all people of the world, without any political, ideological, racial and religious
discrimination”, through a solidarity project.
FIAP and the photographic world joint in a project of solidarity, that once again underlines
the big heart of photographers.
The project schedules the organization of an international competition under FIAP
Patronage (2014/074), with the collaboration of the Circolo Fotografico Arno ILFIAP open to
all photographers of the world, with free theme and with theme “Friendship and Solidarity”.
The entire proceeds will be donated to the NPO “Un Raggio di Luce”, for the realisation of a
polyvalent medical-formative center for women and children in Burkina Faso.
I address you, Presidents of Clubs and friends photographers, help us, with your
participation and your support, in transforming our dream in a wonderful reality.
Thank you for all you will do!
