New Photography Center Opens in Tuscany

PALAIA, ITALY—The Associazione Culturale in Palaia, Italy, has launched a new space dedicated to photography and contemporary image-making, reports Il Giornale dell’Arte. Located in Tuscany, the venue will offer an educational program that aims to connect emerging and established artists, researchers, and other professionals through weeklong classes, exhibitions, artist residencies, workshops, and “Open Days”—free events featuring talks, portfolio reviews, and photographic walks, which start in October.

Classes at the Tuscan House of Photography will be taught by a team of curators, artists, and photographers—including Jodi Bieber, Axel Hütte, and Kenro Izu—and will address subjects such as contemporary landscape and its roots in the history of seventeenth-century painting, visionary photography and experimentation with the medium, post-reportage and different approaches to storytelling, and fashion photography and the aesthetics of fashion images.

Prospective participants in the center’s programming can apply for scholarships; details about funding can be found on its website. The total cost of the workshops is around $1,600; the fee includes enrollment, accommodations, meals, and transportation to and from the airport or train station in Pisa or Florence.
