Continuing its support of great exhibits and major sponsorships over the past year, Kemon is once again tied to the name of a great photographer: Gianni Berengo Gardin, this time, fresh off his win of the prestigious Lucie Award. The award, considered to be the Oscar of photography and one of the most important acknowledgements in the international realm (previous awards have been presented to Henri Cartier-Bresson, Gordon Parks, William Klein, Willy Ronis and Elliott Erwitt), recognizes the career-long achievements of this Italian photographer. Gianni Berengo Gardin’s prolific career spans over 50 years and has produced 200 books and over 70 exhibitions around the world. His most recent exhibition in Sansepolcro, organized in collaboration with Contrasto, is an opportunity to once again admire the enormous breadth of the artist’s work. The exhibition on display is a selection of approximately 50 images from his most famous and significant works, to celebrate his 50 years of photography lived with the humility and passion of a great craftsman. His photography is characterised by an intense humanity streaked with irony; his proverbial understatement that protects him from overly violent interpretations, and the respect that he demonstrates in the face of reality, makes him one of the most original chroniclers of contemporary society. The selection presented to visitors includes some of the journalistic photographs depicting Venice, his family’s native city and the place he left behind to become a photographer; the images of Milan, where he lived for many years; and then Paris in the 50’s, where he learned the culture of photography. Also on display, his famous works of protest and a large selection of photos that reflect on work, everyday life, women, and Italian provincial life, in addition to his famous landscapes.
