Did you ever lose your patience having to spell your name over and over? Do people mispronounce your name? Do you use a nickname because you have given up? Join Italian photographer Enzo Francesco Testa to create portraits of people in Tallaght…with their name spelled and pronounced the right way! The images created will become part of a display that visitors can enjoy during the festival.

Enzo Francesco Testa graduated from Accademia dell’Immagine dell’Aquila and primarily works in Rome as a film maker. He has been taking part in several festivals and has worked as photoreporter across a number of artistic and cultural events. In 2002 and 2007 he participated in two expeditions in Hymalaya and Karakorum and produced two documentaries “Mondisospesi” and “Uominidipietra”. Enzo was awarded the “bookciak Azione!” award in 2015.
