THE NEO-REALIST OBJECTIVE OF BISCHOF
A major anthology dedicated to
Werner Bischof, one of the most important photographers of the 20th century and a founding member of the Magnum agency. The 250 photographs featured in the exhibition, curated by his son, provide a comprehensive overview of Bischof's trips to several of the world's most remote corners, including India, Japan,
Korea, Indochina, Panama, Chile and Peru. In particular, the images focus on the contrasts between industrial development and poverty, business and spirituality, modernity and tradition. A section of 20 unreleased images highlight Italy seen through the ‘neo-realist' lens of the author. The exhibition is set against the spectacular backdrop of the Casa dei Tre Oci, a splendid example of early 20th-century Venetian architecture and a building which has been declared a monument of historical and artistic interest in the Veneto region.
