This is the 5th edition of the workshop held by Piergiorgio Casotti (www.piercasotti.com)
From July 2nd to 13th, 2019 this intensive 12 days workshop is mainly aimed to emerging photographers. Its goal is to provide the participants with the main tools to build a photographic project and develop each participant’s own and unique personal vision.
This workshop will encourage students to explore their emotional horizons and its ultimate goal is to nurture and feed each student’s own unique photographic vision as much as possible. Photography will be addressed as a way to tell stories through our intimate feelings, trying to explore the essential elements that make photography as closest to a “personal portrait“ as possible. This approach is never riskless, but absolutely stimulating. There will be group classes where we will review students daily images and address global issues and subjects but also personal sessions with every student are provided. We will try to go beyond a simplistic didascalic description of the subject, trying to depict a community and the surrounding merciless environment through our instincts, fears and joy.
The course will explain how to construct and develop a photographic project. Some of the aims will be to search for a personal artistic style and students will be required to develop individual projects that will be examined and analysed daily, correcting the weak points and emphasizing the strong points. The pictures taken will be revised daily focusing on the aspects of visual narration/editing and aiming to build a solid, coherent, stunning portfolio by the end of the workshop.
