COMPETITION FOR PHOTOGRAPHERS AND ILLUSTRATORS
an image for the
VENICE ARCHITECTURE FILM FESTIVAL 2021
The VAFF (Venice Architecture Film Festival) promotes the knowledge and dissemination of international cinema which has as its theme architecture, urbanity and collective living.
This year's theme, in continuity with the first edition of 2020, aims to investigate our capacity for aggregation, sharing, a rediscovered sociability and an ability to produce culture through encounters between different experiences.
The title Communities is the extreme synthesis of this reality and this dormant desire from the pandemic that surprised us within our home walls.
Daniel Paterson, Winner
20x25cm silver gelatin print
Daniel Paterson is a Canadian photographer currently pursuing his Masters in photography at IUAV University in Venice. Every Brick was photographed in Murano during the autumn of 2020, it is part of a series Daniel is developing for his masters thesis which presents an enigmatic view of Venice during the COVID-19 pandemic. His images of architectural details, construction materials and boats show an external representation of historic and aesthetic forces and create a fragmented view of contemporary Venice.
Luca Marella, Mention
I was born in 1964 in Venice where I currently live and work.
I have always been intrigued and fascinated by the power of images, which I consider a medium for narrative expression. I like the idea that my photos capture my personal experiences and stories from the world taking the form of visual stories that can engage the viewer.
