MARTIN BOGREN: ITALIA
book presentation / exhibition through April 15
Between 2013 and 2015, Swedish photographer Martin Bogren travelled extensively through Italy – particularly in Naples, Palermo, Rome – creating a lyrical, timeless black-and-white body of work. As Sean O’Hagan wrote on The Guardian, In a way…Italia is an interrogation of street photography.
Partly exhibited at the Fotografia Festival in Rome in 2016, this body of work has been released in 2016 by Swedish publisher Max Ström Bokförlaget – see and purchase your copy here
Been walking around aimlessly for days now. Street after street. With a heavy heart, and loneliness as a constant companion. I’ve forgotten why I’m here and what I’m doing. A camera clutched in my hand, increasingly fearful, with a cowardly posture. ….A presence and intensity fill me – a connection with the people around me. I feel their energy and their vibrations. The subtlest shift in expressions, movements in hands and in gestures. Everything is given a meaning.
– Martin Bogren, Italia
