First week at Paris College of Art:
This course offers the opportunity to refine and extend the skills of students’ photographic knowledge through the experimentation with pinhole, analog and digital cameras. Students discuss photographic terminology, advanced camera settings, exposure techniques and visual aesthetics. Visits to galleries and museums in Paris will be an integral part of this course as well as the development of a personal approach based on assignments, field trips, class critiques, history of photography, and presentations of contemporary photographers.
Second week at IED Venezia:
The focus of the 2nd week of lesson will be Venice street life: its touristic “invasion” and the lonely part of the city, where handicrafts still work on glass, boat and papier-mâché mask.
During this second week of the course students will live a special and exclusive experience having the possibility to portray a place and circumstances unique in the world.
Besides the technical lesson in class, they will experiment themselves on field, reproducing the everyday activities and street life, reporting also the negative impact produced by the mass tourism on some part of the city.
An important part of the course will be dedicated to the editing, so to train students in the definition of their personal book and storytelling.
