From shooting to printing, from editing to design and structure the book itself, during the workshop participants will be accompanied by Gaetano Di Filippo, Dario Coletti and Gaetano De Crecchio throughout an amazing and imaginative journey that will lead them to the production of a unique and personal object. The workshop involves three teachers to allow students to explore the three basic stages of creating a story intended for books.
During the three days, participants will challenge themselves with the project of a short story in images in a context seemingly insignificant but rich in characters, environments, history and memory: the surrounding area – the trees, the water, the plants – an ancient via crucis, memories of historic and protohistoric settlements, as well as the daily life of a mountain village, will be the subjects on which participants will build a surface map through the storytelling.
The workshop will proceed through some essential steps where – in a complex and interconnected system of analysis, both theoretical and practical – many aspects of photographic image will be debated, from shooting, to post production, from editing of the story, to the logic that underlies and animates the idea of an artist’s book; how to make it starting from a simple sheet of paper; how to manage a layout with photographs, writings and small items.
At the end of the workshop, each participant will be able to bring back a real object: an incipit, a “trail” to keep on following.
