Owner's Photo Competition

And the winner of this months Owner’s photo competition goes David Cooper from Ottawa, Canada.

Many of our Owners and their guests are familiar with the UNESCO World Heritage site of Pienza and its renowned scenery, but what we particularly enjoy is the artistic way in which David played with its colours. The final result is a kind of abstract, dreamy shot that leaves us wanting to return on a warm sunny afternoon and throw down a blanket and take in the incomparable panorama of the Val d’Orcia until the sun sets.

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.
