Altripiani is a combination of photography, mountaineering, cultural, anthropological and linguistic research, which aims to trace new paths and different paths. Lines that do not run from one city to another, but that slowly cross mountain ranges and small villages in search of faces and memories. A continuous search for the other in elsewhere, to meet and investigate the differences between the cultures and religions of the countries crossed, between the traditions and generations of the most isolated communities in the mountains, avoiding commonplaces to look for those of encounter and of dialogue.
Altripiani is a project by Giacomo Frison and Glorija Blazinšek, two photographers from Venice. “We have different characters that work well together, complementing each other. Two sensitivities, two ways of interpreting beauty and the common desire to tell moments, stories and people spontaneously. When we travel through mountain ranges we walk an ever-changing trail with an open mind and a tent on our backs. We are Altripiani, the most sincere and genuine representation of ourselves, of our passions and of our desire to know.”
Glorija and Giacomo collaborate with AKU as photographers, storytellers and product testers.
