“Gianni Berengo Gardin. Stories of Photographer” – Exhibition – Venice

“GIANNI BERENGO GARDIN. STORIES OF PHOTOGRAPHER” – EXHIBITION – VENICE

From: 01-02-2013 To: 12-05-2013

Following the great success of the Elliott Erwitt PERSONAL BEST exhibition, the Casa dei Tre Oci of Venice presents, from Februrary 1st to May 12th 2013,  a world premier retrospective of one of the greatest Italian photographers: Gianni Berengo Gardin.

The most complete anthological exhibition of the master. A unique and unmissable exhibition of 130 photos, curated by Denis Curti (artistic director of the Casa dei Tre Oci), who accompanied him on an immense analogical journey among the hundreds of black and white photographic prints that make up his immense archive, to reread all his shots, including those unpublished or rediscovered.

Gianni Berengo Gardin considers this exhibition the most representative of his career. On display are more than 130 analogue prints that trace his work as a reporter and are the mirror of an artist who has made ethics his banner.

130 photos that retrace the career of the great Italian master who more than any other has been able to recover and renew the visual language of our country: Venice and Milan, the psychiatric institutions and the Basaglia law, the Venice Art Biennale and the gypsies, the fundamental reportage entitled Inside the Homes and New York, Vienna and Great Britain, his extraordinary experience with the Touring Club, which inspired him to discover the most hidden corners of our country, and the photos that have until now remained unpublished and are being presented here for the first time.

An observant narrator of everyday life, in all its multiple aspects and its evolution, he is an artist who has immortalised the history of Italy in more than a million shots.
