ROME, Italy, August 9, 2017/APO/ -- 

During the celebrations of the Women's Month in South Africa, the Italian artist and photographer Rosetta Messori will present her works in Pretoria. Taking place from 14 to 18 August 2017 at the Vavasati International Women's Festival, the exhibition will be sponsored by Pretoria's South African State Theatre, with the evocative title 'Flowers of the Revolution'.

The 'Roses' exhibit, dedicated to this beautiful flower, includes 23 prints on prestigious cotton paper and has been organised by the Italian Cultural Institute in Pretoria

It includes photos with a long exposure time, the result of the movement of the camera while shooting, with the aim of 'dematerialising' reality by creating new shapes generated by contact with light.

The photographer will also run a workshop during the festival at the State Theatre on 18 August from 11:00 am to 1:00 p.m. The workshop has been designed for young local photographers as well as amateurs, during which Rosetta Messori will share with the participants her photography experience and the vision that stems from her works.
