The photography contest Lagazuoi Photo Award, conceived in 2020 to show the Dolomites through the eyes of professional photographers able to deconstruct and reconstruct the image of the mountains, man's relationship with the world and the highlands, in 2022 opens up to young people.
The Lagazuoi Photo Award – New Talents, a new curatorial project of Lagazuoi EXPO Dolomiti, aims to give students and graduates the opportunity to capture and reproduce, through photos, videos and sounds, a powerful and complicated image of what it means to experience the high altitudes in the Dolomites.
Thanks to the partnership with the Accademia di Belle Arti G. Carrara di Bergamo, a selected group of young people are offered the opportunity to undergo a unique experience on the top of Mount Lagazuoi: six field days to do research and to activate a dialogue with a very special place, to get to know and make known a landscape and an environment in a unique way, enhancing the natural mountain environment and the emotions of those who visit it.
The presented works will be evaluated by a highly qualified jury made up of Elisa Calcamuggi, Marketing Manager of the DMO Dolomiti, Stefano Illing, creator of the Lagazuoi EXPO Dolomiti, Elisabetta Lattanzio Illy, photographer and journalist, CEO and founder of the Photo Agency Picture of Change, Francesco Pedrini, director of the art academy Accademia di Belle Arti G. Carrara in Bergamo and Leonie Radine, curator of the Museion in Bolzano.
September 2nd is the date at the Lagazuoi EXPO Dolomiti for the award ceremony and the opening of the exhibition, which can be visited until the end of October and will put the entries of young talents in the best light.
