Officine Fotografiche Roma
Officine Fotografiche Roma is a non-profit association centered in Rome, Italy that aims to open eyes to a holistic understanding of photography, cinema and other visual arts. From workshops to exhibitions, portfolio reviews to book launches, basic courses to professional masters, Officine Fotografiche links technical training to cultural education and inspires a greater public appreciation for the nuanced language of photography.
Over the years, OFRoma has nurtured amateurs and honed the experienced by frequently organizing and promoting diverse selections of activities, contests, initiatives and collaborations. Growing every season, OFRoma began with only a few basic courses and teachers to its current expansive array of specialized educational opportunities and resources. It continues to do so, aiming to extend its reach in the general public, seeking people of all levels and giving people the opportunity to connect with others.
Although OFRoma is an Italian association, photography is a global language. With its goal of sharing the art of photography to all, OFRoma hosts some English-taught workshops as well as other opportunities, such as international call for entries, as well as exhibitions and events that need no understanding of Italian to enjoy. In addition, one of the most impressive ways OFRoma reaches a wider and international audience is through its coordination of its annual festivals: Obbiettivo Donna and FotoLeggendo.
