An exhibition of works by the Italian photographer continues on display at the WestLicht Gallery in Vienna up until August 9, 2015. Mario Giacomelli (1925-2000) is today considered one of the most significant Italian photographers of the 20th century.
A trained typographer and printer, Giacomelli discovered photography in the 1950s, inspired by photo magazines and neo-realistic film. During that same decade he managed to have international presentations of his pictures at photokina in Cologne and at the George Eastman House in Rochester, to name a few, but it was an exhibition at MoMA in New York, that ultimately confirmed his international breakthrough.
WestLicht is presenting works from five decades of Giacomelli's creativity, offering a comprehensive overview of the photographer's oeuvre, which is unequalled in aesthetic and thematic consistency.
