FESTA DI SANT'AGATA

Catania, Italy • February  2-7 , 2018

___________________________________

If you know TPW, you know that Sicily has always been at the centre of our attentions. After many years of workshops on Eastern Processions and more recently, A Taste of Sicily, we will be in Catania to follow one of the most celebrated religious Feasts in the world, The Festa of Sant’Agata.           
For details look at http://www.mediaonline.it/catania/agata_en.htm
This workshop will develop into two parallel paths:   to photograph the Feast from a reportage point of view, and then following out heart and inner pulse and get closer to what we need to tell a story about the people of Catania during these days.
It will be a very personal approach, where we will have the chance to build a strong set of new photographs .
The workshop will follow the same days of the processions, keeping the last day for postproduction and critique of the work done.
We will find hotels/apartments in the centre of town, from where it will be easier to have access to different areas.
This workshop is suggested to everyone who wants to live a very strong collective experience, document a unique event and at the same time create a very personal portfolio.     We expect participants to be familiar with their camera (digital), to bring a laptop for downloading images every day, and also be familiar with one of the common editing software – Lightroom, Aperture, Camera Raw etc…    Our assistant will be there to help you with the logistics of going around Catania, but we expect you to know your camera and post-production tool well.
