CAMERA – Centro Italiano per la Fotografia presents, from 18 July to 29 September, the anthological show of the American photographer Larry Fink (Brooklyn, New York, 1941), "Unbridled Curiosity", that gathers more than 90 images featured and produced since the 1960s, and which will be on display in the first five rooms of CAMERA.
The selection – curated by Walter Guadagnini – in black and white and of great aesthetic potency, aims to highlight those links between people and between people and places that Fink, throughout his career, has managed to capture with a watchful eye and his ‘unbridled curiosity’, blending into contexts, stealing moments of intimacy and highlighting the very soul of the subjects portrayed. The major civil rights battles, the exclusive parties staged in Hollywood and major museums, rural life, boxing gyms: nothing escapes Fink’s lens.
My life is a cascade of empathic revelations– comments Larry Fink. A life spent trying to build bridges between classes, the trials, the pleasures and the fears of pain. A life spent accumulating images that mark a sense of sensual and social marvel.This show is a disjointed journey through many experiences and sensations. It’s a testimony of unbridled curiosity.
The exhibition is produced by Fotografia Europea in Reggio Emilia.
