One of the students in the workshop, Frank Zwart, made this image in an abandoned teachers’ dorm at the San Lodovico convent, where we were staying, in Orvieto. Frank is an architect, and took special care in composing his images. He used a tripod, a tilt-shift lens and a level to create this image, which is two files perfectly stitched together. The light falling on the statue of mary, who is precariously balanced on a stack of paperwork, the rhythm of the arches, it all comes together into a beautiful piece of art. one of my favorites from the week’s work.
