REGENERATION, RESISTANCE, RESILIENCE: IMMORTALIZING NATURE'S R FACTORS

YOURBAN2030's Special Award for photography in the MyCITY category calls for submissions depicting elements of these R Factors within nature and Italy's ecosystem, and to do so making the maximum use of emotional impact.

In response to the threat of climate change and to Man's impact on our environment, Nature offers up various efforts of regeneration, resistance, and resilience. Man is also doing his best to remedy the damage done and errors committed by putting in to action the cornerstone of sustainable development: the Three Rs--Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

The Artist

Carlos Atoche

With his backpack full of vibrant colors, this South American artist has decorated the globe with his signature works: a style all his own fusing his Andean roots with classical and Renaissance art traditions, together with Mediterranean influences and a myriad of other inspiration taken from his extensive travels. 

It was here in Rome, during his Art Academy studies, when Atoche began to hone his love for street art, even when the movement was still relatively unknown. His creativity can be seen on walls on the outskirts of Rome, where he was able to find surfaces which inspired him to express his vision. 

His palette is one which weaves together cultures and experiences, to result in true open air masterpieces.

The winning artist

Jordi A. Bello Tabbi

Jordi A. Bello Tabbi (1994) is an Italian-Colombian photographer artist. In his work, the traditions and esotericism typical of Latin American culture blend with a classical European education, giving life to his imagination. Since 2017 he has been working in the Lost and Found studio in Rome, where he cultivates and refines his artistic language: the baroque exuberance of the figures and colors mitigated by a minimalist and severe composition generates detached and strongly symbolic images.

His latest projects (Idoli, 2017; Devotion, 2019; Cardinali, 2020) are driven by his need to understand the founding pillars of culture, the symbols and icons that define it. A transversal investigation into the origins of traditions and faith narrated and filtered by a deliberately cryptic visual language, where the levels of interpretation become multiple.
