GIACOMO BRUNELLI

TELLING STORIES

Summer Workshop in Sicily – July 25-31, 2021

In my projects, I try to give new life to what we have daily in front of our eyes.

When I photographed London, the city where I live, I tried to tell a story of a timeless and dreamlike city through the details of everyday life and I did the same “The Animals” and now with “New York”. I like to tell the mysteries surrounding everyday things.

I shoot with a Miranda from the 60s (once it belonged to my father) and I have always used black and white as a form of expression.

I am a fan of silver gelatin printing and find the black and white elegant, direct and in line with the type of emotions I want to convey.

The workshop aims to develop the photographic vision of each student, guiding them into the practice of fine art and documentary photography. 

During this workshop, we will focus on developing a photographic project, from the start to finish, from the idea through the editing publication, exploring every personal approach”.
