As part of the first-ever DWNTWN Art Days event, Wine by the Bay presents WinePhoto: An International Photography Exhibit, Edition 2011.
WinePhoto is an international photography contest sponsored by Blan, Italy â€“ one of Italyâ€™s leading wholesalers of European wine. Since its first edition in 2004, Balanâ€™s WinePhoto has issued 43 awards and 11 special mentions to professional and non-professional photographers representing 65 countries. The WinePhoto exhibit will be presented in the United States for the first time at Etra Fine Art in Miamiâ€™s Design District and Wine by the Bay in Downtown Miami from September 6 to 8, 2012.
WinePhoto was originally conceived as a means to express how photography relates to wine in both conventional and unconventional ways. Over the years, the contest has evolved and is now a collection of stories about the contemporary world. Each year a theme aims to project a different point of view. The 2012 theme is based on William Faulknerâ€™s Light in August â€œDiaries â€“ Memory believes before knowing remembers.â€ The 2011 theme is: Renaissance, stories that could not have been.â€
The exhibit is curated by WinePhoto Creative Director, Diego Orlando, a professional photographer from Venice, Italy and Photo Editor & Special Projects for Burn Magazine.
