About

Construct your own photographic studio set in Open Eye Gallery alongside international prize winning photographer Lorenzo Vitturi.

This four day masterclass will offer insight to Lorenzo Vitturi’s personal view of photography; A medium conceived as a space of transformation where different disciplines merge together with the aim of originating images full of energy and vitality.

The exploration of Vitturi’s practice will be made firstly through the discussion of his own personal experience and eventually with the realisation of a series of sets in which participants will be able to experiment personally the whole process.

The participants of the workshop will have the opportunity to experience an alternative image-making process. A process that uses the medium of photography as an open space, where photography, graphic design, set design and sculpture interact freely as a unique language, and become organic. The traditional technology of photo shooting combined with the experimental use of poor and organic materials found on the street, will be the tools of this new visual exploration, for the realisation of a visually and stylistically coherent photo essay.

MONDAY 31 AUGUST 2015, 10AM-5PM

After a brief theoretical introduction on Lorenzo Vitturi’s practice and image making process, the participants, divided into smaller groups, are invited to explore areas around the Gallery, and to identify an interesting site to photograph. Once individualised the space, a photographic analysis of the area will take place, as well as collection of objects and debris found on the spot. These will be used in a later phase.

TUESDAY 1 SEPTEMBER 2015, 10AM-5PM

Continuing photo analysis of the chosen site, special focus on landscape and street photography. During the day, the photos will be revised in studio and, together with the tutor, will be made a first selection of images (and development of a specific theme?)

WEDNESDAY 2 SEPTEMBER 2015, 10AM-5PM

Shooting in studio, starting the still life phase, following the line of the material shot the previous days outdoor. Further editing of the outdoor photos if necessary.

THURSDAY 3 SEPTEMBER 2015, 10AM-5PM

Completing the still life phase of shooting and editing. Selecting 6 or 7 images from the material realised during the Masterclass, for the creation of a visually and stylistically coherent photo essay.

Each participant needs to bring their own camera and a laptop to edit the photographs.
