Dear Diane , dear shaded viewers yesterday I went to see the Linee di confine at Camera 16 exhibition curated by Carlo Madesani. Three important italian photographer's work is showcased. Lisetta Carmi was born in Genoa in 1924 , from a jewish family, after having lived through the drama of the racial discrimination, she decided to stay by the side of victims. During the sixties she followed the life of trans in the Ghetto of Genoa, shooting them in the every day life.
Her portrait of Ezra Pound
Luciano D'Alessandro started photographing when was very young, he collaborated with important international magazines . One of his most important and touching works is the reportage at the mental hospital of Nocera during 1966.
Mario Dandero realized many reportages travelling around the world, during his life he photographed great artists, great events but also the simple aspects of ordinary life , his images are a document to the truth.
