Bob Krieger Imagine
Palazzo Morando, Milan - Until June 30, 2019

Artistic fashion photography has always been committed to capturing the seduction given off by a fashion item, often worn by fascinating models with great appeal. Not many people succeed in capturing the soul of a suit and its wearer in a single click. In this Bob Krieger succeeds very well. And to witness its (vast) production between the Sixties and Nineties of the last century, Palazzo Morando organized an exhibition itinerary that excites and surprises for the quantity of faces and clothes able to tell the fashion world of the time, that the author managed to capture and give us thanks to his personal approach to the camera and the protagonists of his shots: "My relationship with stylists was not one of abuse, I always looked after his talent," he said.

Magnum's First
Carlo Maria Martini Diocesan Museum of Milan - Until 6 October 2019

The woman portrayed is Mrs Eveleigh Nash, leading personality of the British aristocracy in the Fifties, and is one of the first shots dated 1953 of Inge Morath, the first female photographer to join the group of the prestigious Magnum Photos agency. For her, photography was a real necessity, a means that allowed her to capture the most intimate part of those who portrayed and to know herself: “Photography is essentially a personal matter: the search for an inner truth... is a strange phenomenon... you trust your eye, but you can't avoid exposing your soul ”.
This shot is proposed in the review that traces the black and white work of eight masters of the twentieth century (Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Capa, Werner Bischof, Erich Lessing, Marc Riboud, Jean Marquis, Ernst Haas and the same Morath) in a period between 1955 and 1956, and found by chance in a winery in Innsbruck in 2006
