| “Walking, even if it is not the physical construction of a space, implies a transformation of the place and its meanings. The physical presence of man in an unmapped space (...) is a form of landscape transformation that, while leaving no tangible signs, culturally modifies the meaning of space and, consequently, the space itself, transforming it into a place ... an action that is simultaneously a perceptive act and a creative act, while also being the reading and writing of the territory!” (CARERI, 2013: 51).

This journey invites us to take an existential, ethical and aesthetic adventure through an immersive experience in nature and in the rural world, capable of inducing another awareness and acuity in how we see.

Objectives | Participating photographers are challenged to photographically map the Protected Landscape of Corno de Bico. The singularities of this territory will be uncovered on foot.

Performance protocols will be explored while the walk is underway. The experience shall include time where the group walks together and moments where participants individually drift away, time for sharing within the group and also exchanges open to members of the community who want to join in.

Participants | Students, self-taught, activists, profissional photographers and from other artistic areas - who pretend to develop new competences and add new perspectives to their personal work. Candidates must be over 18 years of age.

Local | The workshop will take place in Corno do Bico Protected Landscape
