Young photographers at high altitude in the highest artist residency in the Dolomites
Four academy students of the Accademia di Belle Arti G. Carrara di Bergamo were selected by means of a tender and had the opportunity to explore the breathtaking scenery on Mount Lagazuoi for six days and present their perceptions.
The project represents the metamorphosis of the Lagazuoi Photo Award competition, completely renewed this year with the "New Talents" formula: the focus shifts to young people and other artistic forms: now, besides photography, it also includes videos and sounds.
The four academy students selected by means of a tender had the opportunity to undergo a unique experience on the top of Mount Lagazuoi: six field days walking in the midst of 250-million-year-old rocks through an extreme, sometimes almost lunar landscape.
The submitted works have been evaluated by a highly qualified jury made up of professionals and experts: Elisabetta Lattanzio Illy, photographer and journalist, CEO and founder of the Photo Agency Picture of Change, Francesco Pedrini, director of the art academy Accademia di Belle Arti G. Carrara in Bergamo, Leonie Radine, curator of the Museion in Bolzano, Stefano Illing, creator of the Lagazuoi EXPO Dolomiti, Elisa Calcamuggi, Marketing Manager of the DMO Dolomiti.
The award ceremony and the opening of the exhibition are scheduled for 2nd September 2022 at 3 p.m. at the Lagazuoi EXPO Dolomiti, followed by a celebratory drink at the new Lagazuoi Terrace Bar by Embassy.
