TASIS Students visit Robert Capa Exhibition

 

TASIS photography students and faculty visited the Photographica FineArt exhibition which included a selection of vintage Robert Capa photographs. The exhibition "War Stories" tells, through Capa's eyes, wars and international tensions that took place from 1936 to 1954.

(From the gallery website) "Photographica FineArt Gallery was founded in 2009 by Marco Antonetto, to create an exhibition space intended solely to the photographic image as a means of artistic expression. The gallery alternates exhibitions of the great masters of photography and promising young and sometimes compares the work of each other in order to try to form the collector or simple visitor a concept of photographic aesthetics."

Earlier this term TASIS photography students were able to view the Sebastião Salgado's Genesis exhibition in Milan and also a small, but impressive Werner Bischof exhibition in Chiasso.
