Photo reporting workshop from the 2nd to 8th october 2011
Workshop main issues
A photography workshop led by photojournalist SHOBHA, “Wine is the poetry of the land,” will be held in Vittoria, Sicily, from 2nd to 8th October 2011. The workshop is born from the special bond between Shobha and the famous Sicilian wine-producing company Planeta, a bond which is based on their shared love for art and nature.
Aimed for photography amateurs and professionals who are also lovers of good wine, the workshop will offer the opportunity to take a sensory journey through the world of grape harvesting and the poetry of the Sicilian landscape, among baroque vestiges and natural beauties, hosted by one of the Planeta estates, the Vittoria/Dorilli winery.
The program includes trips to Modica, with its splendid medieval castle, Cava Ispica, Ragusa and Scicli, whose architectural masterpieces have become UNESCO World Heritage sites. And then Sampieri, with its Fornace Penna, a former brickyard dating from the early-20th century which used to employ a hundred child laborers.
