Le giornate di fotografia all’Asinara
21 – 24 giugno 2018
In Sardinia (Italy), in the evocative setting of the Asinara National Park, the summer solstice of June 21st will begin an unprecedented experience dedicated to photography that will involve a composite community of artists and operators.
Starting from the longest day of the year, and over the course of four days, thirty selected students and ten exceptional teachers will take up residence and study spaces spread throughout a virtually untouched natural reserve confronting ideas on the broad spectrum surrounding photography
A dense program of lectures, meetings, talks, projections, convivial moments with events open to the public and excursions to discover Asinara and its complex history, rich in contrasts, will make the island – for over a century a place of segregation , quarantine and detention – a unique space dedicated to study and sharing.
The activities will involve, among others, Gerry Badger, Jacopo Benassi, Lorenza Bravetta, Marco Delogu, Guy Tillim, Paolo Ventura, Francesco Zanot, Michele Ardu, Maurizio Caprara and Davide Di Gianni.
The Photo Solstice is a project of the Sardinia Foundation in collaboration with Su Palatu Fotografia, Punctum and Asinara National Park and with the patronage and support of the Tourism, Crafts and Trade Department of the Autonomous Region of Sardinia.
Artistic Direction: Marco Delogu.
