Fotografia Europea 2013 meets VII Photo agency


The photo festival of Reggio Emilia (Italy) Fotografia Europea 2013 meets VII Photo agency.

Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th May, 24 hours non-stop of workshop (production/editing).

The Municipality of Reggio Emilia, in partnership with aBcM, presents the HOST project, and invites the VII Photo Agency to bring its Annual General Meeting and its great photographers to our town.

HOST offers an exclusive opportunity to encounter and discover an internationally renowned agency through a calendar of activities and events in which participants can personally come into contact with some of the leading figures in contemporary photography.


Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th May, 24 hours non-stop: VII SHOOT | workshop (production/editing)

The work of a photographer, from the preparation of a story, to research into the situations needed to tell it, the shoot and final editing. The special feature of this workshop is that participants can follow all the phases of a photographer at work, living the experience and seeing the work produced in just a few hours.

Eight “master” photographers from the VII agency and sixteen students (two for each master) will attend a 5-hour workshop divided into two activities: photographic production and editing. The output/stories will aim to present a city and its changes. The photographs taken by students of VII SHOOT will be shown on Saturday 4th May at 10 pm during the VII Night and will be part of a special edition of VII Magazine (a Web magazine).


Saturday 4th May 12.30 – 3.30 pm : VII LUNCH | Lunch d’auteur and portfolio review

Ten photographers from the VII Agency will lunch with seven guests, for an informal chat on a specific theme suggested by the photographer. The lunch will take place at Caffè Arti e Mestieriand will be prepared by chef Gianni D’Amato.

Lunch will be followed by a shared portfolio review.  Guests are encouraged to bring portfolios for discussion.
