PHOTOLUX is a biennial international Photography Festival in Lucca (Tuscany) going on now through December 15, 2013. The venues are dotted around the city in contemporary and antiquated spaces, some acting as temporary exhibition areas. The festival has a complete program with presentations, workshops, and portfolio reviews for photographers seeking a professional opinion of their work.

The work on view is by both young and established international photographers, as well as photo journalists who are featured in the World Press Photo section. Some of the big names include Massimo Vitali, Joel Meyerowitz, and a multimedia piece by Peter Greenaway. Lucca is a manageable city to walk around and a pleasure to discover the various locations and environments. Here is some of the work I took note of and enjoyed for both content and technical ability, or the context in which it was exhibited.
