Franco Fontana

03/10 - 05/10/2018

A three-day-workshop with Franco Fontana
3-4-5 October 2018

 

During this workshop Franco Fontana will alternate practice and classroom sessions, with the aim of stimulating the participants to develop their individual creativity. The workshop will be an opportunity to testify one’s own sensibility, made up of emotions, invention, fantasy, versatility. An adventurous way of thinking, which breaks rules, because creative photography must not reproduce what is visible, but has to make visible its “invisible”, removing memories and exploring uncultivated paths. Why “color”? Because colors are also a physiological sensation, a psychological and emotional interpretation, a way and means of knowledge, and for this reason it’s something essential, especially in photography.

Franco Fontana was born in 1933 and started to take photos in 1961. His first personal show was in 1968 and this marks a crucial turning point in his research. He’s published over 60 books in different Italian, Japanese, French, German, Swiss, US and Spanish editions. His works have been exhibited in galleries and museums worldwide, in over 400 personal and group exhibitions, and are represented in more than 50 museum collections.

Requested materials: photo camera or any device to take photos. Participants must bring their own laptop, if necessary to the kind of work they will realize.

The workshop is open to a limited number of participants.
