Public Lecture: Photographing the Sacred

Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, Venice
plus SEP, 24 2019

The Centre for Comparative Studies of Civilisations and Spiritualities of Fondazione Giorgio Cini, and the Magnum co-organise a public lecture that will tackle the difficult task of photographing the sacred.
The Magnum photographer Jonas Bendiksen, will talk about his last book The Last Testament, in which he chronicles seven men who all publicly claim to be the biblical Messiah returned. Manoël Pénicaud is a French photographer (Le Pictorium Agency) and anthropologist (CNRS-IDEMEC) specialised on Pilgrimage Studies. He will propose another perspective, that aims to combine the aesthetic dimension of photography with the comprehensive dimension of anthropology of religions.
