Rome, from December 3rd, 2011 to April 29th, 2012- Exhibition dedicated to one of the greatest masters of photography of our century
Awarded several times with the World Press Photo Awards, Steve McCurry, one of the greatest masters of photography of our century, will be in Rome with a major exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome, in the exhibition spaces of the Pelanda at the MACRO Museum in Testaccio.
The exhibition brings together over 200 photographs, selected for similarity of subjects and emotions, highlighting the common threads and unimaginable links that tie people and places together, even at different latitudes.
Some of the most iconic photographs by McCurry will be surely exposed, like the famous portrait of the Afghan girl with green eyes, and the most recent works, from 2009 to 2011, will be also presented for the first time, as for instance the project entitled “The last roll”, showing 32 pictures taken around the world using the last film produced by Kodak, along with a series of "Italian snapshots", from Veneto to Sicily: a tribute to Italy in the year of the celebration of its 150th anniversary of unification.
Location: La Pelanda- NEW MACRO MUSEUM
Address: Piazza Orazio Giustiniani, 4
