Alex Majoli: Scene / talk and booksigning @ Micamera | Milano | Lombardia | Italia
Monday, March 11 _ 7pm Alex Majoli presents Scene (MACK + Le Bal, 2019) booksigning follows SCENE  is a reference to theatricality. The new, beautiful book by Majoli collects images taken over eight years: documentation of conflicts and humanitarian emergencies, political demonstrations, but also quiet moments of everyday life. It is the theater of life: the world is a dark stage illuminated by the flash of the camera. But beware, Majoli does not build the images, often does not even interact with the subjects. In the book, to put it with David Campany, the representation of drama and the drama of representation become one. And everything seems to happen at the end of the day, as night falls. Did someone, aware of the presence of the photographer, perhaps change the gesture? It is not known. The exhibition that just opened at Le Bal (Paris) is accompanied by a series of performances that reflect on the relationship between reality and fiction. Because if theater is seeing when looking, then photography, in the sequence of the book, moves to reflection on what has been seen. Alex Majoli presents the book at Micamera on Monday, March 11 at 7 pm. Booksigning follows. in via Medardo Rosso, 19 in Milan ph. +39 02 4548 1569 / associazione@micamera.it BUY YOUR SIGNED COPY HERE

Stone Butterfly - Cristina Ferraiuolo @ Micamera | Milano | Lombardia | Italia
Thursday, March 21st _ 7pm Cristina Ferraiuolo: Stone Butterfly (Journal, 2018) talk and booksigning A long term project, an emotional, sentimental journey searching the roots of my identity, discovering the female universe around me, in which I have learned to recognize myself and that is one thing with the city. – Cristina Ferraiuolo The butterfly symbolizes femininity and lightness. It reminds of the movement of teenage girls in Neaples, strolling around town on their scooters. They carry the beauty of vital force, in a stage of life that is over in a flapping of wings. The butterfly is beauty, fragility, transformation. The stone is the weight of a destiny often written, but also a symbol of resistance and determination. It is the basalt, the volcanic stone that roads are made of, on which these young women drive their vehicles; it is the porous tufa of Neaples: a city that vibrates while, at the same time, is suspended in time, almost motionless. In Naples, streets are a place to play, grow, live, show off, seduce. Here stone and butterfly are not in juxtaposition; everything coexists, everything passes from one side to the other, from one extreme to another, without obstacles, in a fluid way. The lightness of the butterfly coexists with the heaviness of the stone and there is beauty in both.     Cristina Ferraiuolo will be at Micamera on Thursday, March 21st at 7 pm to present the book published by Journal in 2018.
