We are pleased to announce our scholarship recipient for the Saint Petersburg Photo Workshop, edition 2014, is Vittoria Mentasti (Italy) with an ongoing project A woman with two names exploring the legacy of colonization in Nunavut, a large region in the Canadian Arctic

We have received a lot of interesting portfolios and the choice was not simple. The final decision was taken unanimously by Michael Ackerman, the workshop’s tutor, Mathias Nouel, l’Agence VU’ responsable of the educational department,  and Yulia Tikhomirova, YarT Photography curator:

“One can feel in Vittoria Mentasti’s work the will to openly show a harsh reality, yet with a great decency which reveals the tenderness felt by the photographer towards her subjects.
It is this tension between the need to reveal and the decision to only suggest that makes this series so interesting. A tensions eased by a balanced composition and a very delicate approach to the treatment of color”.

YarT Photography would like to thank everyone for interest and active participation.

The workshop is open to all ages and nationalities! There are still a few places left.

We will be happy to see everyone in Saint Petersburg in July!
