Cinque Terre, one of Italy’s treasures, is a unique cluster of five medieval villages along the coast of the Italian Riviera. Surrounded by a mountainous landscape with olives groves and sparkling seas, these villages have been protected and thereby preserved with national park status. The distinct cultural heritage and environmental beauty make the five villages – Monterosso, Vernazza, Corniglia, Manarola, and Riomaggiore – an incredible destination for any willing explorer.
This fall, join Ed Kashi (VII) for a week long exploratory photography expedition in Italy. Travel Cinque Terre by foot, train, and ferry while creating a “personal documentary project in a land of rich culture, magnificent views, and infinite photographic opportunities.” The field expeditions workshop will also address tactics for improved storytelling, image editing, narrative development, digital workflow, multimedia projects, and portfolio production.
Discover Cinque Terre, Anderson Ranch Arts Center workshop, will allow participants to work personally with Ed on and off the field. Individual and group reviews, and personal assignments will be given to make the experience as rich as possible for all students. The goal is for participants to “return home not only with images to be proud of, but with newfound skills to improve and expand our overall photographic technique.”
The course will take place from September 29 – October 6, 2013 in Cinque Terre, Italy. Students of any level can register here for this unique opportunity.
