Fabrica Photography

Up to now. Fabrica Photography.

curated by Enrico Bossan


Since its foundation in 1994, Fabrica has been welcoming dozens of photographers who have grown accepting the challenge of a unique international environment. Over time it has become a powerhouse capable of attracting talents, offering a fertile ground for experimenting and training, while developing independent languages.

Up to Now. Fabrica Photography is a collection of over a hundred works of fine art, focusing on the works of all those young people who went on to become internationally recognized authors over the years.

From Albino Portraits by Pieter Hugo to Libyan Battle Trucks by James Mollison, from Olivia Arthur’s The Middle Distance to Laia Abril’s A Bad Day, from Bridge City by Mikhael Subotzky and Patrick Waterhouse to the energy problem analyzed by Lorenzo Vitturi in Oil Will Never End, this collection is a testimony of the variety of approaches to photographic documentation, as they cross over continents, creating an iconic and narrative whole.

During Fotografia Europea 2017, Fabrica will also offer a focus dedicated to the works of current Fabrica Fellows Drew Nikonowicz and Ali Kaveh.


Fabrica is a Benetton Group communication research center, founded in 1994. It yearly offers scholarships to a very diverse group of young creatives from around the world, giving them the opportunity to develop research projects in the areas of design, graphics, photography, interaction, video and music.
