The partnership between Stelline Foundation and Micamera continues. The synergy between an institutional place of culture such as Fondazione Stelline and an organization for the promotion of art publishing and artistic research such as Micamera, has led to the opening of a bookstore in Milan city centre where people can deepen their knowledge of culture, books, art and photography.
Micamera started as independent photobookstore 15 years ago and is traditionally located in the Isola district. Over the years, it has collaborated with various institutions, using the book as a tool for the promotion of the culture of photography and expanding its scope to welcome graphics, illustration, painting, architecture.
Micamera Stelline displays a selection of books inspired by the running exhibitions, but also by the great masters of the XXth Century and of the contemporary landscape, in addition to publications related to the historical building in which the Stelline Foundation is located. Micamera Stelline also offers a series of insights investigating different thematic areas.
October 2018: Focus on Japan
Focus on Japan presents an editorial selection drawing an aesthetic trajectory through the history of Japanese photography: from books by important icons such as Daido Moriyama and Nobuyoshi Araki, or Miyako Ishiuchi – recipient of the 2014 Hasselblad Masters Award, to relevant contemporary authors such as Rinko Kawauchi and Mayumi Hosokura, the focus displays hard-to-find publications we specifically acquired for this purpose.
This focus reflects Micamera’s interest for Japanese photobooks, anticipated by the exhibition Japanese Photobooks Now, curated by Ivan Vartanian, co-promoted by Micamera, and hosted by Le Bal, Paris, in 2011.
Focus on Japan is organized in collaboration with the UK distributor Antenne Books.
Micamera works with qualified and passionate experts, always available for talking, giving precious advice, and helping customers find rare or peculiar books.
Micamera Stelline is located at the entrance to the Stelline Foundation, in Corso Magenta 61, and is open from Tuesday to Sunday from 10 to 20.
