Nature’s energy: the intimacy of personal landscapes


In this very personal and intimate workshop, Marianne Boutrit, photographer and teacher at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Milan, will take you on field trips to look intensely at nature and the natural landscape in order to discover the reflections of one’s inner voice. Through exercises and critiques, Boutrit will help each individual explore one’s self through the observation and subsequent photography of nature. For all photographers interested in the landscape and nature itself, this is a mind-expanding workshop of the poetry in nature and it’s reflection of the self.



Vision of personal work, the exploration of Marianne Boutrit’s 20 year project in nature. Discussion of natural subjects through various emotional authors like Eugene Atget and Edward Weston to the cooler New Topographic photographs of Robert Adams and Lewis Baltz.


- Shooting in nature. Analysis of themes evoked and the creation of visual metaphor.
