by Bruce Gilden
This is Italy seen by the American artist and told by the faces of Italians that he captured on the streets. A portrait of Italians which is a sight on Italy: for Gilden «the face is the environment». At Images Gibellina, Gilden celebrates Italy, endowing us with 22 never before seen portraits of Italians, shot in Italy, specifically in Milan, Rome and Palermo. The exhibition will be displayed on the pillars in the tunnel that passes under the Consagra Theatre, a contemporary space dominated by concrete, just like the ground of the many streets around the world where Gilden has looked for and found the subjects of his photography.
Bruce Gilden (Brooklyn, New York, 1946) is one of the most iconic exponents of the American school of street photography. He is a member of Magnum Photos. Gilden has received many awards and grants for his work, including a Guggenheim Foundation fellowship in 2013. Since the seventies, his work has been widely exhibited in museums and galleries.
