“I Wonder if You Can” Exhibition
The prestigious halls of the Siennese Institute of Fine Art “Duccio di Buoninsegna”, inaugurated by the Grand Duke of Tuscany Ferdinand III in 1816 and located in the interior of the ancient convent of the Basilica of San Domenico, right in the city centre just a short walk from Piazza del Campo, on the top of Camporegio hill overlooking the city. “Siena Awards” has chosen this extraordinary premise to mix history, education, art and photography together to form a “unicum” with strong symbolic connotations and artistic awareness exactly where culture and disciplines are taught and transmitted daily to new generations.

Description: an Exhibition of Fine Art Photography using collage, double exposure, and blurred images, in which the photographers illuminate the grace and beauty of their surroundings, revealing hidden truths of the world around us.
The exhibition “I Wonder if You Can” features the work of contemporary photographers as they push the limits of this age-old medium. The artists use an innovative approach to still photography to subvert the viewer’s expectations. The exhibition explores the hidden wonders of the world around us: multilayered imagery to illuminate the experience of traveling, bold colors and blurred images to create dream-like snapshots of a moment in time, and much more. By challenging the conventions of fine art photography, the photographers tapped into the beauty of everyday events, giving meaning and purpose to scenes and experiences we might otherwise take for granted.
