Skin & Food 2.0: Food, photography and cinematography
Throughout history, both photography and cinematography have often collaborated with each other creating a strong bond. On the other hand, the food-photography-cinematography relationship isn’t that common.
The advertising photographer from Milan, Cristiano Maggi, managed to find just the right balance between these three subjects and presented it in the exhibition “Skin & Food”, in both Milan and Rome last year. This year, the exhibition opened up again in Rome, and being an opportunity we couldn’t resist, we visited the exhibit together to see up close around 40 photographs from this artist.
The exhibition is hosted by the Banca Generali headquarters in Via Bissolati, from July 5th until September the 30th, 2016*. On the walls you will find photographs of sensual yet delicate female bodies adorned in an elegant way by the typical food found in the Mediterranean culture.
A perfect harmony between colors and lights
The aseptic environment, typical of an office with white walls, highlights photographs that dance down the halls and meeting room of the bank, creating a perfect harmony between colors and lights.
It can only be described as an exhibition dedicated to photography with perfect images, perspective games and focus to detail. Such details involve the spectator in an almost playful way by referencing movie films. From “Juno” to “Gone with the Wind”, “The Devil Wears Prada”, “A Clockwork Orange”, and “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”.
Among those we recognized at a glance “The Devil Wears Prada” and “Bread and Tulips“.
Our favorite? Undoubtedly “Gone with the Wind” 😉
All images in the exhibition are for sale in the same format and exposed design in a limited edition of 20 copies each. For more information please visit the official website Skin & Food.
* The exhibition has been extended until the end of October 2016.
