Scicli turned to be a small quite, sincere and authentic village. A great place to learn techniques and approaches to street and travel photography. The People who joined this workshop were the highlight of the overall experience. , from different Nationality and experiences, each with a different technical level but with a unique and bonding passion ; photography.
Photography has become a means to rediscover ourselves and getting involved in the culture and traditions of Sicily. The difference between who sees and who observes is as thin as the one between those who describe and those who narrate and teller. Through our shots we tried to tell our Scicli observing the facets and the less usual declinations of the town. We went in search of elegance, contradictions and novelties.
The workshop served to better understand that a journey begins when you understand how to look differently and to photograph you must fall in love and be surprised. Scicli was a great set, full of architecture, street and people. the patronal festival of St. Joseph, a centuries-old tradition, was a good opportunity to test our creativity and technique.
We did not miss anything, We had scenic lunch at the famous gourmet Satra and a journey among the natural perfuumes and flavours of Russino's farm.
I am personally very pleased with the collaboration with Bioturismo who gave its unique touch to the logistics of the workshop, looking for a simple, yet elegant atmosphere.
The photograph was a way to escape from everyday life and get carried by the sense of freedom that only passions and traveling can donate.
