THE ARTIST & YOU: A Context for Risk & Genius, Workshop with Gus Powell & Giorgio Barrera in Milan


  • CFP Bauer 24 Via Luigi Soderini Milano, Lombardia, 20146 Italy (map)

DESCRIPTION
On this, just before the 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, we explore the legacy of his genius throughout the city of Milan. As an artist, da Vinci was no stranger to failure. It was an inherent part of his creative process. Propelled by the need to take risks, he was a painter, a canal builder, a planter of vineyards. Using Da Vinci and his work in Milano as inspiration, we will encourage you, the photographer, to take similar risks.  Experience is the first step. This workshop is an opportunity to work intimately and rigorously with two photographers with distinctly different styles spanning landscape, street photography, narrative, and conceptual practices. We’ll accompany you in discovering your own personal genius and developing and refining an inner language to photography. A unique opportunity to expand upon your existing practice, improve your visual language, and discover a city in a one week intensive workshop.
