This is a brand new experience to me and I am very excited about working with Vicki and Colomba to this workshop. Colomba has worked extensively as a portrait artist, photograping important figures in contemporary international cultural life and she is practicing yoga as well.At the beginning I thought about yoga as a way to work out, relaxing oneself, and about photography as the practice of shooting images as an artistic exercise...I have just found out that yoga can be practiced by anyone, at any age, and photography can turn into a creative exercise of self recognition.
Tuscany's landscape can be the link between the two. We'll be staying in a wonderful XVIIth century villa on the hills around Lucca. While staying there and enjoying the charming environment, one will be able to cast the eye of the camera, not simply on art, beauties, people, food...but "dig out" his/her own personal/inner idea of Tuscany. Restorative yoga classes, self reflection and self study followed by meditation will be the right keys to reach for a "portofolio" to be shared as memory and common representation of the experience. I am curious to see what the outcome of this exercises will be. Bloggers are invited to share info and create awarness on the programme.
