Stefano Stoll is the director of the Festival Images in Vevey, Switzerland. This visual arts biennale makes a special feature of monumental openair installations. Every two years it presents photographic projects created especially for the festival in the streets, parks, museums, and galleries of the city. In this context, Stoll is also responsible for an ‘off space’ dedicated to contemporary photography (Espace Quai1), as well as the Grand Prix International de Photographie de Vevey. While still a student, he cofounded and codirected Switzerland’s first photography festival: Les Journées Photographiques de Bienne. He was also Vevey’s head of cultural affairs from 2004 to 2015. As an author, he is a member of AICA Press and writes on cultural policy, art, and photography.
