Hi friends of photography
... a beautiful exhibition awaits us !!
The Museum of Rome in Trastevere hosts the first Italian retrospective of Inge Morath ( Protected content ), the first female photojournalist who joined the famous Magnum Photos photo agency.
Tireless, polyglot traveler, a woman of multifaceted interests and profound culture, Morath was born in Graz, Austria, in Protected content . She does not fear cultural, linguistic or geographical barriers: her knowledge of different foreign languages ​​allowed her to analyze in depth every situation and to come into direct contact with people.
Working relationships with personalities such as Ernst Haas, Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson, help to clarify the professional evolution of Morath and the personal photographic style nourished by the humanistic ideals after the Second World War, but also by photography as a "decisive moment" as Cartier-Bresson called it.
Through his photographs, he retraces the steps of his main geo-ethnographic reportages, including also the famous series of curious portraits with the masks of the designer Saul Steinberg.
We are waiting for you!
