Facing the Camera, 50 years of Italian portraits 1968-2018



Facing the Camera, 50 years of Italian portraits 1968-2018

Curated by Marco Delogu

Through the works of twenty authors and their personal research this exhibition explores portrait photography in Italy, with a great number of unpublished photographs and some renowned ones picturing subjects looking straight into the camera, silently aware of being portrayed. From this strong connection between the photographer and the subject, based on a shared homeland, social group and history, originate direct portraits that seem to cross eyes with a future observer. As the 500th anniversary of Raphael's death approaches, his beautiful portraits, that have been seen by countless admirers and influenced the work of numerous artists, are the reference point for a continuous reflection on both portrait and Italian identity.
