The Documentary Photography | Through the Lens series, curated by NYU Florence Professor Alessandra Capodacqua, explores photography as a visual language to communicate ideas and to reflect on the intersection between the personal and the public.

Renowned international documentary photographers are invited to present their work and to discuss the importance of documenting and communicating about our world through photography.

A special series of workshops allows students to work in small groups with the photographers, who share their experience and expertise in an intimate group setting, provide practical training and individual feedback on students´work.

Past guests include Peter Bialobrzeski, Paolo Woods, Martin Kollar, Monika Bulaj, Alessandro Imbriaco, Tommaso Bonaventura, and photo collectives Cesura and TerraProject.

Manipulating Reality: A Disconcerting Stroll Through the Mind of Mr. Toledano
A Dialogue with British-American Photographer Phillip Toledano
March 25, 6:00 p.m., Villa Sassetti

Photography Workshop with Phillip Toledano (NYU Florence students only)
March 26 - 27, 10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. - Villa Sassetti

As photographers most of us at some point will shoot something personal: about our family, or our parents, or our children. But how do we do it so it’s honest, unabashed, and open? How do we make work that’s truthful, that reveals our very core? For the last 9 years, my work has turned inwards to family. Through ‘Days with My Father’, ‘The Reluctant Father’, and other projects, I’ve learned how to have a dialogue with myself, to use photography as a means of making sense of the incomprehensible. Over two days, students will show projects they are working on, and we’ll take them apart. We’ll try and understand what’s being said; what’s being left out. Together, the class will figure out how to make them true, how to make them powerful. Personal work only works when you become unafraid.
