In 2018, after careful work on his archive, the famous photographer Paolo Pellegrin, from the historic photo studio Magnum Photos, inaugurated an anthological exhibition of his works. After winning numerous international awards with exhibitions that marked his artistic career, his works finally arrived in the Rooms of the Arts of the Reggia di Venaria and can be visited through a mesmerising itinerary.
Between light and dark, over 200 photographs bring us on a journey from the armed conflicts that tear the world apart to the climatic crisis in which Nature – and man – is the protagonist. We will also discover the space within the walls of his studio, “rearranged” at each stage of the exhibition, to allow the observer to enter the world of the Author and deeply understand the choices, intuitions and urgencies of his unstoppable and multifaceted research.
The exhibition also features a special brand new section dedicated to a personal and intimate chapter of Pellegrin's work-life – the photographs taken in Switzerland with his family during the quarantine period following the Coronavirus lockdown.
The exhibition is extended until 2 May
