Special Edition

Vanessa

My name is Vanessa, I’m 42 and I was born in Udine, in the beautiful region of north-east of Italy named Friuli Venezia Giulia, where I live.

I’m a lawyer and I love my job so much, but it’s also a very heavy-going work and so I really need being deep connected with nature and also doing something that make me mindless. I really love skiing and mountains. If I don’t find the snow, I go for trekking, hiking or climbing. For the past year I fell in love with photography and now I’m so enthusiastic to live again this experience!

Matteo

After the great success of Krakow, Barcelona, Budapest, Sicily, Marrakech, Lisbon, Copenhagen, Prague, Athens, Santorini, Seville, Paris, Valencia, Gran Canaria and Amsterdam, Let me Italian you is proudly ready to launch the first and exclusive edition of DISCOVER STOCKHOLM. It will be a unique and exclusively edition for the all 2023!

Stockholm is known as one of the most inclusive and welcoming cities in the world. Its contemporary, urban appeal is balanced with centuries-old history and closeness to nature. As for the things to do in Stockholm, the list is endless. Spreading idyllically across a Baltic Sea archipelago of fourteen islands, it’s easy to see why the Swedish capital of Stockholm has acquired the nickname “Venice of the north”. It seems as if wherever you look, your gaze is met by water.. 

DISCOVER STOCKHOLM is an innovative project whose purpose is to make the participants live a professional experience for those who love photography and video making.

The main goal of the project is to valorise and promote the magic city of Stockholm, in Sweden, trough photos, reportage, videos made by photographers (amateurs and not) from different places of the world. DISCOVER STOCKHOLM wants to enrich the professional and academic path of the photographer, moreover it wants to enrich his portfolio.

The two tours of the cities is organized in collaboration with Sofia, a professional local guide,who knows all the sights of Stockholm  and will take you on a guided tour .  Exactly:

1° Tour "Old Town - Gamla Stan"

2° Tour "Ostermalm & Norrmalm" 

3° Tour "Södermalm"

Further, we will visit one of the most beautiful gem in Stockholm: Stockholm Subway System! The Stockholm subway system is said to be the world's longest art exhibit - 110 kilometers long. Traveling by subway is like traveling through an exciting story that extends from the artistic pioneers of the 1950s to the art experiments of today.

But it is not enough! We'll go to visit two of the most charming viewpoints of Stochkolm: Monteliusvägen (considered to be one of the best and most romantic viewpoints in Stockholm) and Fjällgatan (the Stockholmers love their Fjällgatan. They call the vantage point affectionately their “balcony”).


Last but not least, we will visit one of the most important park in all Stockholm: Humlegarden.

In order to improve participants’ professional and academic skills, there will be several workshops :

  1. Lecture with the internationally renowned Björn Persson 
  2. Workshop “Portrait Photography" lead by the photographer Susanna Ldky
  3. Outdoor Photo Shooting with local models in Humlegården

How is DISCOVER STOCKHOLM organized and what is its output?

The role of participant is to take photos of Stockholm’s beauties during each guided tours. You will work alone or in pair (your fellow could be one your friend). The project lasts 4 days.

Irina

My name is Irina, I live in Paris and I like very much to take photos around me. Before I always walked with a small camera, and now I am satisfied by using my smartphone, always in hands. I like to look at the world through a lens noticing little details - rain drops on a flower, funny shaped cloud, amused faces of girlfriends talking while having a cup of coffee, an unusual door handle or just passing near little dog. Looking for interesting details and seizing particular moments is some kind of meditation for me, allowing to keep a good mood and painting the world around with new colors. I've partecipated in Discover Prague 1.

Hello, I'm Filippo, I'm 22 and currently studying psychology in Padua.

I've had photography as a hobby since I was in high school; for me it's a way to ease tension and get to see the beautiful and the interesting the world has to offer.

As a psychology lover, I like seeing how photography can influence our emotions through composition, certain colors, or lack of them.

Hi, I'm Tanja from Finland. I live in a small town in Western Finland with my 12 year old daughter. I work in a department store at the moment. Travelling and photographing have both been a big part of my life always. Wherever I go, I'll take hundreds of pictures, because I just love to capture every beautiful and special detail. I get so much inspiration from everything beautiful. I love to photograph nature, food and people. I'm an amateur, but photography is my dear hobby. Lately I have only been shooting with my cell phone and haven't touched my SLR in probably a year (hope so that it's still working!). So, I can't wait to get some new inspiration for using my camera again! This is my very first DISCOVER -experience ever! I have been "living" those moments through social media during many many years, but now finally I can really join in!!So, see you in Stockholm.

Greetings from Romania!

I like to travel in the company of those people from whom I can learn and whom I can admire displaying their lifelong passions.

Even if I only admire photographic art and do not practice photography, the company of this environment and the message that photography conveys have been sufficient motivations for me in everyday life, from beauty, to technique and even inspiration for my everyday activity.

Thanks to the two wonderful people, Gabrielle and Massimiliano, for giving me the opportunity to participate for the second time in their wonderful journey, with and about people and ideas.

My name is Cristina , I'm twenty-seven years old and I live in Tuscany with my boy-friend .

My family is composed by four people: my Mum, my Sister , my Brother and me.

I don't like to practise sport a lot, I like Gym and to take long walks to the open with my Dog Bullo . 
 

I like to listen music and going out with my friends.

My passion is Phopgraphy, that’s why I decided to partecipate.
