30 photographs of strong, beautiful, american women portrayed from other women, american photographers, strong and courageous, that influenced the visual history of USA. This is the subject of the image research we developed, under the guide of curator Denis Curti with Still, for Tiffany & Co. The exhibit “The Female Portrait: Photography by American Women” is now in preview at Palazzo Ruspoli, in Rome, and will open to the public on Friday the 13th of May at Space Gallery Tiffany – Via del Babuino 118, Rome.
The artists in the exhibit are extraordinary: Diane Arbus, Margaret Bourke White, Imogen Cunningham, Linda McCartney, Sheila Metzner, Judy Dater, Doris Ulmann, Dorothea Lange, Annie Leibovitz, Lisette Model, Eve Arnold, Mona Kuhn, Cindy Sherman, Nan Goldin, Florence Henri, Toni Frissell.
An homage to beauty and creativity of american women, as Denis explains on the Italian photography magazine Il Fotografo: “These selected images are only thirty but they are able to tell us the story of a great country, through the female view of the most renown American photographers. Besides, as often happens, the quality is more important than quantity, and if the storytellers are women, to get straight to the heart of things looks much more simple and natural. Showing America, in some ways, it means get to know the history of cinema and, even better, the history of photography “.
Getting in direct contact with trusts, archives and some of the photographers themselves has been like touching and feeling a really important chapter of the history of photography, which Tiffany with Denis Curti have chosen to show us.
Enjoy the visit.
