Bettina Rheims

Chiostri di San Domenico
30 April – 8 June 2008
This series by Bettina Rheims represents the fulfilment of the artist’s deep desire: to create a relationship with sculpture in her photography, exploring the idea that one can imagine the back of the human figure while seeing only the front, as if the model were suddenly visible in 3D. Bettina Rheims grew up with art and was inspired by ancient marbles: from Michelangelo’s Slaves to Rodin’s Bronzes, where bodies seem to spring from stone – a sensation that the photographer wants to transmit through this new series of portraits.   
As well as original productions and the section dedicated to the works of masters from past generations to the present day, the exhibition programme of Fotografia Europea 2008 includes two prestigious exhibitions by two important protagonists from the world of photography: Edward Steichen and Bettina Rheims
