From the artist residency to the exhibition
open from 2nd September to 22nd October 2023
Luna Belotti from Bergamo, Luca Annaratone from Rome and Giorgia Dal Molin from Milan will exhibit their site-specific photo reportage in the museum at an altitude of almost 2,800 metres, created side by side with a team of Nikon Creators.
The participants, chosen from students at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bergamo, the Officine Fotografiche in Rome and the Istituto Italiano di Fotografia in Milan, were supported in their journey by three tutors, professional photographers from the #NikonCreators team. Together, they created a four-handed work, supported by the technology and instruments provided by Nikon.
Luna Belotti, a student at the Accademia di Belle Arti di Bergamo born in 2001, is the winner of this edition of the Lagazuoi Photo Award New Talents. "Certe Mattine" (Some mornings), the narration of five days spent on Mount Lagazuoi with her companions, set up like a modern "Carnet de Voyage", impressed the jury.
Luca Annaratone and Giorgia Dal Molin, respectively students of the Officine Fotografiche di Roma and the Istituto Italiano di Fotografia di Milano, were joining Luna on this adventure. And like Luna, they lived in symbiosis with the rain, the rocks, the blinding sun and the low-hanging clouds on Mount Lagazuoi with the camera around their necks. Their artist residency has produced three individual projects, a story that was shared on social media as well as this exhibition at the Lagazuoi EXPO Dolomiti.
