Fifty years of history of photography on display at an exhibition in the MADRE Museum of Naples, until 24 October 2016. Fifty years of this subject packed into one of the most comprehensive exhibitions ever made, dedicated to the Neapolitan photographer Mimmo Jodice.
The route, specifically designed to accommodate the work of Jodice, runs through the aesthetic core values of his photography: the search for the Mediterranean identity, still life, classical art, urban space seen as an inexhaustible container of images and stories.
The photos’ black and white carve contrast between shapes, enhancing them, while giving deep meaning and natural elegance. Photographic art that distances itself from mere descriptiveness, and attempts to explain and to bridge the gap that separates observer from the subject portrayed.
An unmissable exhibition, inside a myriad of cultural events that mark the beginning of an expected Neapolitan renaissance culture in this period. Visit the Museum’s website to find out more.
