This workshop is for advanced and serious enthusiast photographers who want to advance their knowledge. Nowadays the photographer has to go beyond the supposed quality of his single pictures, he has to think differently. Photographers need to be able to read and tell good stories rather than shoot beautiful images.
What and how we should photograph to distinguish ourselves among the millions of wonderful images shot every day in the world?
How can we develop a project that makes us feel authors and not just images producers?
The workshop will start with a quick reflection about the history of Photography up to the analysis of the work of contemporary photographers who developed good projects reaching the most famous galleries in the world.
Then we will try to build interesting projects following the aspirations and the interest of each participant.
The goal is that at the end of the workshop every participant could have a good project done, and the tools to build new good projects in future.
