Scouting and promotion of emerging photography talents
STILL YOUNG and YOURPICTUREDITOR announce the collaboration YOU’RE STILL YOUNG.
Thanks to careful scouting and tutoring, You’re Still Young presents and promotes a wide selection of young emerging photographers, whose new communication languages are a breath of fresh air, an artistic push out of stereotyped production. YSY, together with agencies, newspapers and companies that show attention to emerging creativity, is able to develop a new visual communication’s strategy, through assignments, exhibitions, events, socials and projects that support young talents.
Creativity and attention to new languages
STILL YOUNG (Milan, Italy) is a project founded by Alessandro Curti, as a rib dedicated to the emerging talents of STILL, an organization and gallery active for years in the promotion of photography of great authors. “The project was created to fill the void that prevents young photographers from having the correct support in front of a complex artistic and professional path” says Alessandro Curti. “Too often emerging artists are unable to see their creative path enhanced and end up stuck in their artistic growth. STILL YOUNG supports young artists through permanent and temporary initiatives that encourage the circulation of projects and events and the participation in fairs and exhibitions, both nationally and internationally”.
YOURPICTUREDITOR (Lenzburg, Switzerland) is an agency and international network of photo editors and curators, founded by Margherita Guerra, specialised in services for photography and communication: conception, creation and diffusion of exhibitions and festivals, selection of photographers and production for commissions, photographic research and clearance of copyrights, press office and social media presence management, support to photographers for editing, participation in competitions and project proposals. YP has many collaborations on an international level. The latest project is the creation of the new photography Festival Fotofestival Lenzburg (Switzerland).
The two companies, active for years in the creative field, combine their skills to enhance and promote young artists in the editorial, exhibition and commercial field.

Discovering talents is not so simple
Many young talents, even though they have a carefully crafted educational path and a strong ability to create projects and to stand out, do not have easy access to institutional, editorial and commercial photography. Even companies looking for new languages, capable of drawing a young and visually evolved audience, often do not have the time to select and promote young talents. The extremely articulated artistic panorama, the breadth of propositions at all levels, does not make it easy to identify talents that can emerge even at an international level.
YOU’RE STILL YOUNG responds to these needs: it has selected a pool of young independent artists, supports their photographic projects and helps to develop new ideas, with strong artistic connotations, to support visual communication, allowing companies to position themselves with their own brand in photography and art, ensuring a re-branding strongly aimed at a young audience.
Backed by a structure of professionals
Thanks to the international network of knowledge and active contacts of Yourpictureditor and STILL YOUNG, the projects carried out have access to the necessary services to make a communication project truly visible:
– Art direction, production
– Dedicated press office, with coverage on the websites of STILL, Yourpictureditor, Black Camera of Rolling Stone
– Organization of ad hoc events
– Travelling exhibition on national and international circuit
– Design and production of the book/catalogue
– Proposition in the International Network’s Photography Festivals
– Social media campaign development
The formula is already successfully tested
The already active and successful collaborations that in recent years have led the artists of STILL YOUNG to exhibit in venues of international importance such as the Milan Triennale, the GAM in Rome and the Villa Reale in Monza. The emerging young photographers have had the opportunity to collaborate with important companies such as steel and engineering industries, luxury eyewear brands (Lozza), pharmaceutical companies (Takeda) and international festivals (EICMA, Sony World Photography Awards).
To open up new paths, you have to dare. Dare – visually – with YOU’RE STILL YOUNG.
