THE BEST IMAGES OF THE YEAR
METRO BILBAOABANDO, MOYÚA, SAN MAMES, CASCO VIEJO
from February 1 to March 31
Born in Bellano, on the shores of the photogenic Lake Como, Carlo fell in love with the surrounding landscapes, with the lights and textures that sheets of water and boats leave imprinted on our retinas. But the frontiers of those shores soon became too small for the photographer’s restless and open spirit. Enthusiastic about adventure, evolution and technology, he discovered an environment that was tailor-made for him in the great sailing circuits and extensive marine spaces, an environment that he knew how to portray to perfection. He became, at the age of 62, the recognised expert in nautical photography. Dozens of books and book-cover photos attest to the ever-increasing success of his career.
Carlo Borlenghi is a nature-tamer. It appears to pose for him. He extracts gold from this blue quarry that is the hostile and changing sea, with the yachts and sailors that inhabit it. Lights, textures, moments… the sea shows them and Carlo composes them.
from March 4 to 10
