The Erotic Eye Workshopwas created by Donna Ferrato and Tomeu Coll in 2015. It is a guided tour through the world of eroticism, symbols, and fantasies. At its heart is the belief that we are born to love and be loved, and that, in the words of the late great Czech photographer Miroslav Tichý, “All of society is based on sexuality.”

Ferrato has already led three Erotic Eye Workshops in Spain, Germany, and the U.S. and its examination of the complexities of sex, love, and violence are the cornerstones of her work.

Submission fee

Submission to Visura Grants and Open Calls is free for our members. While we encourage new members to join Visura (review costs), we actively discourage photographers from joining for the sole purpose of applying to a contest.

We believe in a better model and we seek to create an alternative to the status quo of pay-per-contest.
