As part of the first edition of the Lagazuoi Photo Award, the Lagazuoi Expo Dolomiti at Cortina d'Ampezzo will host a photography workshop coordinated by Denis Curti, artistic director of the Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice.
LAGAZUOI LANDSCAPE PHOTOGRAPHIC MARATHON is the title of this workshop dedicated to high-altitude landscape photography. The guest of honour is the well-known photographer Olivo Barbieri, who won – among others - the Lagazuoi Photo Award 2020 and who is exhibiting his work Dolomites Project 2010 at the Lagazuoi Expo Dolomiti.
FOCUS OF THE WORKSHOP
The workshop begins in the morning at 10 am. with the introductory talk by Denis Curti to present a summary of the best photo productions dedicated to the landscape and the mountains (duration approx. 1 hour).
Then the participants will dedicate more than 3 hours to photography on Mt. Lagazuoi (from 11 am. to 2.30 pm.). Afterwards, everyone can present his photos to a jury made up by Denis Curti, Olivo Barbieri and Ing. Stefano Illing, creator of the exhibition complex. This jury will choose the best photo, which will be shown for a year at the entrance to the Lagazuoi EXPO Dolomiti.
