Workshop with the photographer Maurizio Galimberti
Keeping in line with events connected to the historical Carnival celebrations, which this year has the city’s “arts, trades and traditions” as a theme, the Casa dei Tre Oci is going to dedicate a whole day to photography as an art. An event which has the aim of investigating into the deep changes that have come about in this profession and trying to understand all its potentialities.
Maurizio Galimberti, – the grand master will attend and intervene on the modern-day meaning of this profession, and also on the common practice of taking shots. The workshop will try and examine as its main points – instantaneous photography and portrait photography – both linked to the “Galimberti” name. The technique of instantaneous photography is inserted into an almost twenty-year analysis of places, spaces, landscapes and various other horizons, so much so, that Galimberti is internationally recognized as an “instant artist” photographer and creator of the Dada Polaroid Movement. His style of photography has developed over time, via a dimension of research and discovery of rhythm and movement. In the same way, the portrait represents one of the grand master’s peculiarities, where he captures the faces of singers, actors and common people.
The scope of the workshop is – to try and understand how creativity and projectuality are interpreted, and in what way photography can become a way to express and convey the concepts while rendering them modern and original at the same time.
The workshop will be held from 11am to 3pm, and will be followed by the reading of participants’ portfolios, in the presence of Denis Curti, – Casa dei Tre Oci’s director.
A unique opportunity for all photography enthusiasts to get advice from some of most important figures on the national photographic scene.
