From 30 March to 15 June 2012 Casa dei tre Oci – Giudecca Island From 30 March to 15 June 2012, in the enchanting setting of the CASA DEI TRE OCI – International Photography Centre, on Giudecca Island, you’ll be able to admire 140 photographs by Elliott Erwitt, which are among the most famous and prominent of his entire career. As a member since 1953 of the Magnum Agency, founded at the end of the Second World War by a group of photographers including Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa, not only has Erwitt recounted in a journalistic fashion the last six decades of the history of our world and of contemporary civilisation, but has been able to collect, in a set of black and white images, the most tragic and amusing aspects of his life spent striving towards his goal. The excusive method with which he has undertaken this difficult endeavour is that of the snapshot, which brings out the irony of a universe frozen in peculiar poses, but also the unexpected perfection that can arise quite by chance. Casa dei Tre Oci International Photography Centre is a place entirely dedicated to photography and the language of contemporary art. It is in this extraordinary location that great internationally renowned photography exhibitions and small exhibitions showing the portfolios of young emerging photographers are held. In the Casa dei Tre Oci, the photography collections belonging to the Venice Foundation may be consulted in digital format, as well as the collections of De Maria and the photography archive and book of Italo Zannier. There is also a library, high-level training centre with various areas for workshops for both basic and specialised courses.
