October 19-26, 2014
Barcelona has been called the “great enchantress” by art critic Robert Hughes and paid homage to by the otherwise curmudgeonly George Orwell. The largest city on the Mediterranean, Barcelona’s unique attraction stems in part from its freewheeling world-class cultural and artistic traditions.
In this destination photography workshop, we will join master photographer Harold Davis to explore all aspects of Barcelona with our cameras, from the well-preserved Gothic quarter with its maze-like warren of narrow and picturesque streets to Antoni Gaudi’s famous Sagrada Familia. We’ll follow in the footsteps of Carlos Ruiz Zafon, author of The Shadow of the Wind, and visit the real-life places he used as the models for the places in his books, such as the Cemetery of Forgotten Books and the Sempere and Sons bookshop. We’ll walk the Ramblas, and shoot the spectacular view from the Castell de Montjuic, and Tibidabo, photograph architecture old and new, and immerse ourselves in Catalonian culture.
We are also planning an excursion to Montserrat, the holiest site in Catalonia, where we’ll visit the basilica, photograph the panoramic views from the top of unique rock formations (accessible by funicular), and join the pilgrims visiting the shrine of the Black Virgin.
Come join us on the photographic adventure of a lifetime!
