The brilliant and irreverent gaze of English photographer Paul Graham delivers to the new European and American generations a handbook of images of the themes they will face, outlining – through affinities and differences – the complex dividing line that runs along the two shores of the Western world.
Walking as an aesthetic practice: the artist gives an intimate and poetic description of a city that manifests its most secret nature, echoing ancient civilizations. Rovaldi’s photographs tell of trees and open spaces, of objects abandoned on the ground, of immense uncultivated lawns, of concrete showing the signs of time, of fragments of torn paper, tar, brick walls, metal nets, and again signs, signs everywhere.
Cosa hanno visto che noi non potremmo vedere? Ogni scatto e singola parola di Caimi&Piccinni, Simone Cargnoni, Francesco Faraci, Francesco Malavolta e Alessandro Penso appare come tassello di un puzzle di inenarrabile geografia, in cui confini, limiti, barriere e distanze assumono un valore nuovo insieme a una distorsione generata da processi storici che si abbattono su milioni di persone inermi.
The result of a long bicycle trip in two stages along Italian coasts, “Orizzonte in Italia” by Antonio Rovaldi is a complex image that has formed over time, through an accumulation of gazes; it is at the same time the trace of an experience, personal and circumscribed, and of an imaginary world, collective and boundless.
“Il viaggiatore parallelo” collects images and words that the author gathered over many years, travelling by train across the Italian peninsula. A book that gives us a deep and parallel feeling of the journey, in which people and views, different spaces and times connect and are reflected in each other.
