Life’s a beach, Martin Parr on display in Livorno

Life’s a beach, Martin Parr on display in Livorno

Giulia Guido · 1 year ago · Photography

The life of bathers, comfortably lying on their sun beds and beach towels, too busy spreading cream and sunbathing to think about anything else. 

This is the world that will be told in “Life’s a beach“, Martin Parr‘s exhibition that will open next April 2nd in Livorno.

On the other hand, what better place than Livorno whose beaches, during the summer, are populated by tourists and not only, recreating exactly that atmosphere captured by the internationally famous English photographer and reporter. What fascinates most of Martin Parr is his ability to capture moments of everyday life, habits that we have under our eyes every day and present them to us in a new way, revealing what is hidden behind them. 

There will be 56 photographs exhibited inside the Granai di Villa Mimbelli in via San Iacopo in Acquaviva, 63, all characterized by that exasperated use of color and that original cut which, in addition to having brought Martin Parr to work for Magnum, have managed to transform documentary photography into art photography. 

WHERE:
Granai di Villa Mimbelli, via San Iacopo in Acquaviva 63, Livorno, Italy
WHEN:
from April 2nd

The words of Serafino Fasulo, art director of the Laviosa Foundation, promoter of the exhibition, perfectly describe Martin Parr’s art and prepare us for “Life’s a beach“. 

Martin Parr manages to find great themes of reflection on the human condition with a humour that borders on sarcasm, placing us, for once, not in front of the vices of others, but of our own.

Changing Time, the photographic project by Ramona Zordini

Changing Time, the photographic project by Ramona Zordini

Buddy · 1 week ago · Photography

Ramona Zordini is an Italian photographer and visual artist whose work focuses on ambiguity and transition, investigating the body and its plasticity.

Water is the theater of his shots. The bodies emerge revealing their sensuality and fragility. According to the artist, physical evolution comes from our moods.

Memory and the evolution of the emotional sphere are fundamental elements of our self-determination. But even if we are sure we can” seize the moment “and we realize the importance of every second, this moment has already passed.

Each piece of the puzzle must be replaced again in a never-ending cycle.

The powerful and seductive photography by Geoffrey Yahya Vargas

The powerful and seductive photography by Geoffrey Yahya Vargas

Giulia Guido · 1 week ago · Photography

Discovering a world made of both lights and shadows is exactly what we find ourselves doing when we look at Geoffrey Yahya Vargas‘ shots. 
Geoffrey Yahya Vargas is a filmmaker and photographer based in Paris. The images are his means of communication and to achieve his work he experiments with different techniques, without setting himself any limits. 

In his portfolio in fact we find more or less conceptual short films and music videos, but what has captured our attention and our gaze are his shots. Made both in digital and analog, Geoffrey Yahya Vargas creates powerful and impactful imagery. 

The close-ups of the models he photographs hypnotize us and their profiles, emphasized by colored lights seem to seduce the viewer. 

The one photographed by Geoffrey seems like a forbidden world, where everything is focused on the body, gestures, movements and emotions. A quick glance at his Instagram profile will be enough to be sure.

Eric Marrian’s sensual and elegant shots

Eric Marrian’s sensual and elegant shots

Buddy · 1 week ago · Photography

The female body is a work perfectly composed over ten thousand years. A magnetic field. A map to explore. Every line of the body, the commas that compose it; the curves, the voids and the solids that the legs, the arms, the hips, draw in the background; its imperfections.

There is something extremely fascinating in the imperfect geometry of a woman’s body, however, it is done. Eric Marrian has noticed that, as a good architect of geometry and perfection, he has been taking care of it for a long time.

Marrian, with his photos, scrutinizes the symmetry of the female body, its generous curves, its sinuous features, its caressing softness, then giving it, through the use of color, the hieratic and the concrete perfection of the statues.

That body that we see every day, that we take care of, love, look in a distracted way, can compose that soft symmetry, that perfect geometry of lines and curves?

To discover it you just have to scroll through these shots or scrutinize the mathematically imperfect body of the woman who chose you.
