An Italian Family Portrait

Share:

The Photographische Sammlung/Stiftung Kultur Sparkasse Bonn shows a series by Italian Photographer Francesco Neri. From September 1 through October 17, 2017, and November 9, 2017, until January 28, 2018.

One may view the individual photographs by Francesco Neri (*1982 in Faenza) as “trophies” or as “treasures.” In his series, the photographic image shows itself in all of its cultural value. Neri presents it in a multitude of ways—as object, as a means of communication and document, as memento, as composition, as reproduction and transformation, and finally as an independent work of art.

Produced in the home of his grandparents, the series, of which about 30 exhibits have been selected for the exhibition, allows personal insight into the private and professional life of Francesco Neri’s family. The areas of medicine (father and grandfather were physicians) and hunting play a particular role. There is hardly a photograph that does not exhibit traces of these activities. The images include both sensitive interiors in the manner of a classic still life as well as landscape photographs and views of nature. The portraits of his parents, which the photographer takes in everyday situations – observing them casually, as it were – testify to great closeness.
