Jodice, Mimmo - Lost in Seeing: Italy, thirty years of visions (New in plastic!)
Lost in seeing covers a thirty-year journey through the changes of the Italian scene.
Mimmo Jodice, one of the greatest Italian photographers, offers unexpected visions and unseen things, famous places and territories of the imagination. He crossed Italy from the north to the south in his modern Grand Tour, drawing a comprehensive portrait of striking images. Jodices magical realism leads us through the Mediterranean islands, the Italian countryside, the restoration of St. Peters church in Rome, the decommissioning of Venice-Marghera, the remains of Pompeii, and the urban transformations and the sites of archaeology.
Seen through his lens, Italy takes on a whole new aspect; even its landmarks vibrate with movement and possibility.
Domenico "Mimmo" Jodice (born 24 March 1934, in Naples) is an Italian photographer. His name is well known in the history of contemporary photography.
When he was very young, he dedicated himself to painting and drawing and was passionately interested in arts, classical music, and jazz.
In the early 1960’s he discovered photography as a new means of expression. He began to experiment with different materials, abstract forms, and all linguistic and technical aspects of photography.
During the 1970’s he was in contact with the most important avant-garde artists, who worked and exposed in Naples: Andy Warhol, Joseph Beuys, Kounelis, De Dominicis, Paolini, Sol Lewitt, Kosuth, and many others.
