The 2019 Red Bull Illume finalist images are exhibited on 2×2 meter lightboxes scattered around the town hall square. From today, 19 December, until January 6, 2020 the visitors are invited to take a look at the world’s best adventure and action sport photographs. Thanks to the illumination system, the photos will be “turned on” after sunset, when the sky gets dark.
Located in the heart of the Pustertal Valley, Bruneck is not only worth a visit for this great exhibition but also because this town combines wonderful characteristics of the region.
Bruneck is close to some of the best Italian ski resorts and it also offers a long list of activities, like ski touring, hiking and climbing. These are just a few examples of the exciting options the region offers, so it’ definitely worth booking a winter holiday in this valley.
For these reasons, Bruneck is the perfect location to put under the spotlight those who are often forgotten when going to a photographic exhibition: the unsung heroes behind the camera – the photographers who capture the magic. With this exhibition Red Bull Illume wants to celebrate the careful eye behind the lens and invites the visitors to become immersed in the energy, spirit and creativity of the inspiring images.
