Outdoor shooting with Andrea Rossato

On Saturday 27 June and Saturday 4 July 2020, we organize two group outdoor photo shootings aimed at producing reportage for the free open call “On the trail of the Patriarchal State of Aquileia”.

The two shared project outdoor shootings will be coordinated by an exceptional “mentor”: the Friulian photographer Andrea Rossato, who will create an ad hoc reportage, and at the same time will guide and stimulate the participants to obtain from them significant photographs that lend themselves to being part of the project. Interested photographers will be able to participate freely, equipped with their own photographic equipment and autonomous in their movements.

We will therefore resume the call, exceptionally, from 2 to 12 July 2020, to allow participants to upload photos taken during the exits.

The best works will be subsequently selected for the widespread collective photographic exhibition (at Palazzo Meizlik in Aquileia, Museum of the Territory of Cormòns, oratory of Santa Maria in Valle in Cividale del Friuli), and a photographic volume supervised by a historian whom we will announce shortly. Everything will be presented as part of the Photo Days Tour, a corinth of events that take place during the Trieste Photo Days 2020 international photo festival.
