The show

Palazzo Ducale welcomes the first major Italian retrospective of Inge Morath, the first photographer to join the famous Magnum Photos photo agency.
Inge Morath's work, before anything else, is the testimony of a relationship, a passion, a necessity with photography. A relationship developed over the years through experiences and encounters, as well as an integral part of the life of a woman who succeeded, with courage and determination, in establishing herself in a strictly male discipline.

Throughout his career he has made photographic reportages in Spain, Italy, the Middle East, America, Russia and China. He has never faced these journeys with superficiality, but with seriousness, studying the language, the traditions and the culture of each region where he went. He was fluent in German, English, French, Spanish, Romanian, Russian and Mandarin. Whether they were ordinary people or public figures, his interest was the same and he always directed towards the intimacy of each one.

Inge Morath learned a lot from Henri Cartier-Bresson to Ernst Haas and with whom he collaborated in important reportages. His photographic style has its roots in the humanistic ideals resulting from the Second World War, but also in the photograph of the "decisive moment", as Cartier-Bresson had called it. Inge Morath's photographs reflect her sensitivity, but at the same time they are like pages of her private life diary, as she herself writes: "Photography is essentially a personal matter: the search for an inner truth".
