This photographic exhibition, created especially for Pistoia – Dialogues on Man, comprises sixty pictures, some hitherto unseen, taken by one of the best loved photographers on the world stage, admired for his commitment and innovative documentary aesthetics. These photos were shot in Algeria, Egypt, Kurdistan, Palestine, Iraq and the United States, and they are accompanied by a video by Paolo Pellegrin himself: recorded in America, the new film explore the racial divisions that still ravage the country, borders that may be invisible, but which are even more insurmountable than physical barriers. The pictures cover a timescale of almost 30 years, using a process of subtraction and opposition to trace the arduous path of coexistence, obstructed by walls, wars, stormy seas and harsh deserts. In other words all kinds of borders - natural and artificial, visible and invisible – that divide, imprison and isolate human beings.In this way, the exhibition transports us to humanity’s borders, to illustrate the continual yet necessary effort underpinning the foundations of coexistence.
The catalogue is published by Contrasto.
