Micamera Stelline for Christmas: Humboldt Books @ Micamera Stelline | Milano | Lombardia | Italia
MICAMERA STELLINE FOR CHRISTMAS HUMBOLDT BOOKS + ÒBELO Christmas at Micamera Stelline means a special focus dedicated to Italian imprint Humboldt Books, whose catalogue narrates the experience of travelling through editorial projects  blending literature, geography, architecture and design, photography and art.   HUMBOLDT BOOKS   The focus on Humboldt Books will open on Friday, November 30th. At 6pm founder Giovanna Silva will be present. Founded by Giovanna Silva and Alberto Saibene in 2012, Humboldt Books is named after Alexander von Humboldt, ‘the greatest scientific traveller who ever lived’ as Charles Darwin once defined him. The publisher’s purpose is to express the idea of journey through interdisciplinary projects. These travel stories – be they real or imaginary – are therefore the result of mixed contributions by artists, writers, photographers, designers, architects from all over the world. The result is a new, unconventional gaze, that Micamera will try to convey through the daily online reviews.     ÒBELO   On Wednesday, December 12 at 6pm we will present the art intervention by òbelo, duo formed by designer Claude Marzotto and visual artist Maia Sambonet. Inspired by Humbodt Books’ catalogue, using the book-objects, òbelo will play with the identity of Micamera Stelline (camera = room; stelline = little stars), creating a landscape in which photobooks are “rooms with a view” for the observation of the earth and the firmament. Sambonet and Marzotto will  also produce a limited edition silkscreen poster that will be for sale at the bookshop.   The focus on Humboldt Books, and the art intervention by òbelo, will be on display through Sunday 6 January 2019. Micamera Stelline is the new bookstore in Milan city centre (just in front of Leonardo Da Vinci’s Last Supper), born from the collaboration between Stelline Foundation and Micamera Bookstore. Along with thematic insights and editorial focuses, the bookshop always displays a selection of books both for adults and for children, spanning over illustration, graphics, photography and painting.   FOCUS ON HUMBOLDT BOOKS November 30, 2018 – January 6, 2019 opening: Nov. 30 at 6pm ÒBELO for Micamera Stelline December 12, 2018 – January 6, 2019 opening: December 12  at 6pm     Micamera Stelline c.so Magenta 61, Milan open Tuesdays to Fridays 10am-8pm (closed on Mondays) call: +39 02 45462411 write: bookshop@stelline.it

  A few days after NASA’s New Horizons probe sent us images of Ultima Thule, the most distant object ever explored by man (which very appropriately for the season resembles a snowman), and as we are about to give way to the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the unforgettable moment when Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin looked at the moon through Apollo’s porthole on the notes of Frank Sinatra’s Come fly with me and then (maybe, who knows) there was the historic first lunar walk broadcast live on television for a worldwide audience – well, all this said and give, we also invite you to a fantastic space journey. Precisely, we take you to a planet called FEROX. Together with Fobos and Deimos, Ferox is the third moon of Mars. Discovered in 1989, it was the subject of study in the so-called united program The International Exploration for the Mars Surroundings (IEMS).   Nicolas Polli, author of the very interesting book Ferox – The Forgotten Archives 1976-2010 , will guide us. The book was also recently shortlisted for the renown Aperture Paris Photo Award in the First PhotoBook category. Ferox – The Forgotten Archives 1976-2010 is a book of photographs (and texts), extensively using archival material. Through this project, and using his excellent skills as a graphic designer, the author wants to give an easier access to science. The book was released by Ciao Press, a publisher which is almost as real as Ferox, in collaboration with Skinnerboox, and exists in a very limited edition of 600 copies. It will be available for the evening. Don’t miss the opportunity, book your signed copy here   Nicolas Polli was born in Brusino Arsizio, Switzerland, in 1989 and lives in Lausanne where he works for the Master in Photography at ECAL (Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne). In 2012 he founded YET magazine with Salvatore Vitale, an internationally distributed photography magazine. In 2016 he won the HES-SO award for his project “Ferox the Forgotten Archives”, and the same project has been selected for several awards such as Images Book Award, Unseen Book Award, Luma Foundation Book Award and Aperture First Book Award. In 2016 he was selected for Pro Helvetia’s “Prix de la relève photographique” and in 2018 he won the Swiss Design Award. On February 28 Nicolas Polli will open the site specific installation of the project at MEGA in Milan.      

Awesome Works
