with Christopher Morris
May 4 – June 11, 2017
Via Avancini 8
20142 Milan, Italy
The exhibition, curated by Alessia Glaviano, Senior Photo Editor for Vogue Italia. presents a selection of photographs shot by Christopher Morris of Trump’s supporters during the last American presidential elections. The photographs appear to be dense in symbolism and meaning and, by suggesting several interpretative layers, they highlight the theater of political rhetoric as well as the contradictions within and the fanaticism of certain voters.
In addition, there will also be a selection of slow motion videos portraying the main presidential candidates. Using a Phantom Miro camera, which had never been used previously to document political events and while filming at 720 frames per second, Morris has devised a new form of photojournalistic narrative.
