    Gold in Fine Art / Landscape

Between October and December I have been in Val d'Orcia, in Tuscany, to create impressive images using the fog and the light of dawn, a typical phenomenon of this period. With this project I wanted to represent the magnificent landscape of the Val d'Orcia in Tuscany through the early morning light that filters through the fog using the shadows that are created in the symbolic elements of this territory, such as cypresses, farms, plants and small churches.

Alberto Fornasari, professional photographer, was born in Arezzo in 1973. It's really Tuscany with its traditions and its beautiful scenery to inspire and define more closely the poetry of his photographic journey. Since 1994 he has dedicated himself to telling the story of the Val d'Orcia and the Crete Senesi through images in all seasons of the year, taking advantage of the light of dawn. He made his first landscape photographic exhibition in 1997 and in 2000 received his first award in the competition Italian Institute of Landscape Photography.
