Mattia Zoppellaro is an internationally renowned photographer, specialized in portrait. He’s portrayed, among others, U2, Lou Reed, Patti Smith and Depeche Mode. He’s collaborated with several prestigious magazines, such as Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, GQ, Sunday Times Magazine.
A portrait is a result of the encounter between 2 persons: the photographer and his subject. It’s not important how much time the two spend together, how well they know each other, if they like the other or not: what matters is the ability to create a connection and transform this event in an image.
“Street Portrait” aims at showing how to take advantage of what the space around us puts at our disposal (natural light, city architecture) when we have to portray someone.
Max number of participants: 15
