Cesura Photo-busters is a cultural photo-residency project launched by Cesura to photograph Italian and foreign territories with an artistic and independent approach. A diverse group of photographers focuses on a specific area for a limited time; the collective work is then edited and exhibited at the end of the residency. Cesura Photo-busters aims to interact with the area’s social fabric: to do this, the photographers seek support from the local community to examine the environment in depth.
In 2019, Matera was nominated “European Capital of Culture”; during this time, four CESURA photographers traveled to the Basilicata region, exploring four different routes that all converged to a single destination, Matera.
