A pleasure and an honor to be selected by LensCulture (one of the most renowned international photographic organizations) for the second time in 2 years and be featured on their Network Gallery of top photographers.
Last time was my “Beauty In Hell” project… this time is my “THE SOUL OF JAPAN: Profound Tranquility or Modern Loneliness?” were I tried to present and describe a feeling of detachment and kind of “self inflicted” loneliness which may seem very strange to a non Japanese or someone traveling to Japan for the first time (full description on the project page).
 
Here is the link to the photo story which will be featured for the next 6 weeks. Hope you’ll enjoy!

VIAGGIO/WORKSHOP FOTOGRAFICO IN LADAKH CON TREKKING IN MARKHA VALLEY

Workshop Fotografico Ladakh

E’ con grandissimo piacere che annuncio la mia nuova collaborazione – Viaggio e Workshop Fotografico Ladakh – con il Tour operator Viaggi Tribali (www.viaggitribali.it) che già da anni propone viaggi culturali e tour fotografici di alto livello in giro per il mondo.
A partire da settembre sarò presente in alcuni dei loro viaggi come accompagnatore e fotografo di viaggio e terrò un workshop fotografico personalizzato durante ogni viaggio.

Come prima meta abbiamo deciso di proporre a settembre/ottobre 15 giorni nelle splendide terre del Ladakh (il piccolo Tibet dell’India) con un bellissimo trekking di 8 giorni in Markha Valley… il tutto con un mio workshop di circa 12 giorni!

Nelle prossime settimane usciranno altri 2 viaggi in locations mozzafiato!!!
1. in Etiopia alla scoperta di remote tribù con workshop tra etnie e natura;
2. in Nepal con workshop di street photography a Kathmandu, trekking fotografico in Annapurna e fotografia di natura e animali nella giungla del Citwan.

Qui sotto il link al viaggio con tutti i dettaglie e le info sul sito di VIAGGI TRIBALI. Se interessati o per qualsiasi informazione non esitate a contattare me o gli amici di Viaggi Tribali. Vi assicuro che sarà un’esperienzxa indimenticabile!!!

DURATA VIAGGIO: 15 giorni
IMPEGNO: alto
TREKKING: 8 giorni nella markha valley.
TIPOLOGIA: viaggio naturalistico, culturale, etnografico.
PERNOTTAMENTO: hotel, home stay (case locali).
OPERATORI/GUIDE: 1 guida parlante italiano a Leh (esperto di cultura locale), 1 guida locale parlante inglese per trekking in alta quota, 1 fotografo/viaggiatore esperto dall’Italia parlante italiano/inglese.

Focus del Viaggio:

‣ I MONASTERI di Leh con guida culturale in italiano.
‣ IL TREKKING attraverso scenari mozzafiato con montagne e vallate. Il Ladakh è la terra coi grandi passi e vedremo grandi montagne dalle alte vette.
‣ IL WORKSHOP FOTOGRAFICO LADAKH di street photography (nelle città) e documentaristica/paesaggio (durante il trekking) + lettura scatti ed editing durante il viaggio con fotografo professionista dall’Italia.


Un Viaggio rivolto a:

‣ Tutti coloro che amano la fotografia! il workshop fotografico può essere personalizzato (contattare Tony Corocher una volta confermata la prenotazione) e quindi è adatto a tutte le tipologie di fotografi, da coloro che sono alle prime armi, ai fotografi amatoriali più o meno esperti, ai professionisti che vogliono confrontarsi con nuove situazioni.
‣ Chi ama viaggiare in modo avventuroso (ma sempre sicuro e seguito da staff esperto)
‣ Chi ama l’approfondimento culturale, il contatto con la natura incontaminata, con etnie, con usi e costumi diversi e con la gente del luogo che ci accoglierà nelle proprie case.

IMPORTANTE: durante il trekking si dormirà in homestay quindi è necessario sapersi adattare ad alloggi che non possono avere i confort a cui si è abituati in Italia… SPIRITO DI ADATTAMENTO E BUONE CONDIZIONI FISICHE PER AFFRONTARE IL TREKKING SONO CARATTERISTICHE ESSENZIALI E NECESSARIE.

I’m pleased to announce that I’ve received 2 Honorable Mentions for the 2 photos I sent to the “2016 Oneshot Competition: Family of Man” by IPA (International Photography Awards – Los Angeles). These images are also part of my ongoing Project “Beauty In Hell: Beauty over Drama”.

An international distinguished panel of Jurors has selected the winning images. I am very glad to announce that both images I sent were awarded with an Honorable Mention
1. “Power Rangers. Laughing from the heart”. Part of my photo-essay “SONS OF THE MONKS: Children left Behind” (https://www.tonycorocher.com/sons-of-monks-children-left-behind/)
2. “Homescape… Traditional and modern”. Part of my photo-essay “PORTRAITS OF STRENGH: Ethnic Women in North Vietnam”. (https://www.tonycorocher.com/portraits-of-strength-women-in-ethnic-vietnam/).

In 1939 Edward Steichen was given the assignment to curate a show for the Museum of Modern Art, in New York City.  He asked 30 photographers including Cartier Bresson, Eugene Smith, and Dorothea Lange, to document the common links of humanity worldwide. Steichen asked the photographers to photograph the commonalities of Birth, Childhood, Love, marriage, and Death

This year IPA takes inspiration from the Family of Man, to document parallel circumstances in the world today, which produced those iconic works.
