Visual Feast

Why do us 'curators' choose what we choose to display and share? What makes a great image? In an era full of Instagram photographers (some of which are very talented in their own right) - what truly defines and separates the masters of Still Life Photography?

I've been hearing about Villa Lena's picturesque retreat and it's renown artist residency for quite some time now. I can only imagine the Italian sun on your back, a fresh wind in your hair, the smell of herbs and cypress trees being the perfect setting to get out of busy city life, take life a bit slower and develop on ideas and collaborative projects. Each year the Villa welcomes a number of selected artists to spend two months at Villa Lena developing their project of choice, where you can also join them for a weekend.
