Caronaimmagina 23

with the theme ANIMA(L)S the soul of the earth through the streets of Carona's historic core CaronaImmagina, an outdoor photography festival free to all, is back with its third edition. For the duration of four months from June 1 to September 30, the alleys and squares will be colored by the magic of giant photographs hung on houses and walls. Guided tours, night tours or the free chance to have a good time in one of the most beautiful historic cores in Canton Ticino.

Events, again related to photography, will be on the agenda to engage visitors such as the iris photo or the positive paper photo, the animal set....

Not only a festival but also something to experience in front of or behind the camera, an important moment for enthusiasts and curious people.

The detailed program will be prepared during the coming months. We can anticipate that for this edition we have the pleasure of hosting an of National Geographic Society exhibition.

Important names that together with yours will give us the opportunity to create a unique event for our canton and beyond.

Projects overview

The interaction between animals and their environments are critical for maintaining a healthy planet that we call home. But for many species, time is running out. When you remove one, it affects us all.

The National Geographic Photo Ark is a multiyear effort to raise awareness of and find solutions to some of the most pressing issues affecting wildlife and their habitats. Founded by Joel Sartore—National Geographic Explorer, photographer and 2018 Rolex National Geographic Explorer of the Year—the project aims to document every species living in the world’s zoos, aquariums, and wildlife sanctuaries; inspire action through education; and help save wildlife by supporting on-the-ground conservation efforts.

Creating portraits of hope


Joel Sartore started the National Geographic Photo Ark in his hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska,

more than 15 years ago. Since then, Sartore, a world-renowned photographer, has traveled the world in his quest to create a photo archive of global biodiversity that will feature portraits of more than 20,000 species of birds, fish, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. Once completed, the Photo Ark will serve as an important record of each animal’s existence and a powerful testament to the importance of saving them.

No matter its size, each animal is treated with the same amount of affection and respect. The results are portraits that are not just stunningly beautiful, but intimate and moving. “It’s the eye contact that moves people,” Sartore explains. “It engages their feelings of compassion and a desire to help.”
