Owner's Photo Competition

And the winner of this months Owner’s photo competition once again goes to Jeff Hartvigsen from Winnetka, Illinois, USA

It is a real bonus for us to have a professional photographer, amongst our owners. Jeff’s talent virtually guarantees that he captures great shots for our monthly owner’s photo competition section and we are especially proud to hang each of his photos in individual residences for other owners to enjoy.

We decided to award Jeff for two of his images. At a first glance they look almost artificially enhanced and you can be forgiven if you took a double take…. What! You are awarding the same picture twice? you ask…: these two “fire” skies on a late afternoon, certainly share similarities, but when you concentrate between the two images, you discover that one image is taken from Piazza Garibaldi, in Cortona and the second image was taken from Castiglion del Lago on Lake Trasimeno. Both stir up strong emotions…but they were taken over 20 kilometers apart.

We are very grateful for sharing your holiday images with all of us. Bravo Jeff!

Each month one high resolution photo will be chosen and circulated electronically; from now on the winner will fittingly be presented with a copy of the renowned American photographer Leonard Freed’s photo book IO AMO L’ITALIA. Freed’s exhibition Io amo L’italia was held during 2012 in Milan, Rome and Turin and well supported by both critics and the general public.

Leonard Freed once referred to his relationship with Italy as a “love story”. This passion reaches back a long way, beyond his career in photography, to his first interest in the medium, which began on his initial trip to Europe in 1952.
