"Venice is one of the most photographed cities and its famous Carnival is one of the most photographed events in the world.
Many people think that Venice is easy to photograph because everywhere you look is a postcard-perfect image. However this is not really the case: this beauty 'overdose' can easily lead the eye into clichés.
When we first saw the work of the Bragdon brothers, we immediately thought they would be perfect for the challenge of holding a workshop to showcase a different side of Venice. They are exceptional street photographers, their view is never banal and digs deep into the details and essence of the subjects they photograph."(Francesca Lanaro and Federico Sutera)
The Bragdon brothers: Gavin and Gareth Bragdon are street photographers based in Edinburgh Scotland. They have been doing street photography since 2011 and since then have shot not only in Scotland but also throughout Europe. Their work has become known internationally and is known for the use of off camera flash, a technique originally used to deal with the Scottish weather but became a way to expose the surreality of the urban environment and the people inhabiting it. The brothers are also members of the Scottish street photography collective Grey Skies and the international Full Frontal Flash.
Last news: Gareth Bragdon got finalist in the Magnum photography award!
