“Uncommon people in ordinary life” at Photographica FineArt Gallery

The exhibition brings together some forty photographs in which well-known personalities in the world of art, entertainment and politics are portrayed in their daily lives by great photographers of the twentieth century. “Uncommon People in ordinary life” shows how one of the main themes of photography is to realistically document the every-day life, therefore also the lives of famous people, all thanks to a magic eye and a camera of some of the world’s greatest photographers.

One of the main actors of the show will be Robert Capa, both as object and as a subject of some images on display: we find it in some famous portraits, the first being that of Henri Cartier-Bresson, where Capa is photographed in the company of David “Chim” Seymour, while the two photojournalists discuss the Magnum agency in a cafe. In the second photo – that of George Rodger – which is probably one of the last portraits of Capa in Indochina shortly before his death in 1954, where he smiles, holding his new Nikon. As the photographer, Capa is be the author of two images depicting Ernest Hemingway in contexts very different from each other: the first in a likely rare quiet moment with the family during a hunting trip with his son in Sun Valley, Idaho (USA) and in the second, during the Spanish Civil War while discussing with fellow Republicans.

The exhibition will include iconic shots of Mark Shaw: President John F. Kennedy departing by plane to Boston while embracing First Lady Jackie or while playing with his children, relaxed; right next to a photo of a smiling Ernesto “Che” Guevara taken by Elliott Erwitt. Richard Avedon – at work during a photo shoot – immortalized by Jacques H. Lartigue, is also the author of two splendid portraits: the first to the model Natassja Kinski with a python and the second of the actress Anne Bancroft, mythical female protagonist of “The Graduate.” Also as part of the fashion and entertainment, there is a shot-in-colour by Annie Leibovitz depicting a young Jodie Foster and a sweet Marilyn Monroe by Philippe Halsman.

On display is also Ugo Mulas‘s photograph of Alberto Giacometti when he won the Grand Prize for sculpture at the Venice Biennale in 1962, along with Tazio Secchiaroli‘s document of Marcello Mastroianni who chats with a photographer and Federico Fellini during the filming of “8 ½ .” Not to be forgotten the iconic image by Robert Frank, who portrayed his two friends Allen Ginsberg and Peter Orlovsky during the appointment of the Pulitzer Prize in 1995.
