Denis Curti con Gianni Berengo Gardin: Stories of a Photographer
The visionary and creative shots of day-to-day reality by a child of our time. Considered by many the most representative of Italian photographers, for almost fifty years Gianni Berengo Gardin has been a narrator attentive to everyday life in all its multiple aspects and in its evolution, having immortalized the story of Italy in over 1,250,000 pictures. For his work, he prefers black and white because "color distracts the photographer and the viewer." And the images are what counts. People, objects, close-ups, historical monuments. Images that are concrete, never abstract, but above all real images. It’s hard not to perceive the creative and visionary component of his snapshots, however much they are attentive to the day-to-day reality of humanity and its communities.
