Guest Room is a monthly online exhibition with open submissions curated in real-time by personalities from the international photography scene.

Alessia Glaviano

Curator - January 2019

Guest Room aims to spark collaborations. That’s why Alessia Glaviano is teaming up with Chiara Bardelli Nonino, Photo Editor at Vogue Italia and L’Uomo Vogue, in chosing the theme for this instalment. Chiara has decided to work with the quote from “Teaching my mother how to give birth” by Warsan Shire:
»I have my mother’s mouth and my father’s eyes; on my face they are still together.«

Submissions for this Guest Room considered the sentence above, whether explicitly or abstractly. Alessia Glaviano worked with the quote in mind when making her selection for her Guest Room.
