Il tempo di un viaggio, Marco Pesaresi, Postcart Edizioni - Curated by Davide Monteleone

Il tempo di un viaggio, Marco Pesaresi, Postcart Edizioni - Curated by Davide Monteleone

In 2017 I was given the opportunity to curate the exhibition “Il tempo di un viaggio” at Savignano Photo Festival, Italy, a retrospective on the unreleased work of Italian photographer Marco Pesaresi about his journey on the Trans-Siberian railway. 

I met Marco soon after his Russian adventure, just before his last trip. In his photographs I have always recognized something of him and of the Russia I got to know over a decade ago. 

Last year I had the pleasure to work together with Postcart Editions on drawing up the exhibition catalogue, a collection of images that I see as successful accidental encounters, as exquisite examples of sincere and honest photography. Not presuming to explain something, but rather to understand.

"A New Silk Road" nominated for the Prix Pictet

“A New Silk Road” has been nominated for the theme for the eighth cycle of the Prix Pictet. Hope – a theme that offers a wide range of creative possibilities and a strong set of connections to the Prix Pictet’s overriding theme of sustainability. Hope in the face of adversity. Recycling. Reforestation. Rewilding. Science – advances in medicine – and technological solutions for global environmental problems. Falling poverty levels. It is time to examine some of the positive actions on sustainability that are beginning to emerge by contrast with the alarming analysis that constantly assails us in the global media.

The next shortlist will be announced at Les Rencontres d’Arles in July 2019 and the winner at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in November 2019.

Pace e guerra attraverso la fotografia

L’Associazione Italiana Giovani per l’UNESCO, comitato Lombardia, organizza in collaborazione con il Comune di Milano e Palazzo Moriggia | Museo del Risorgimento, nell’ambito della Giornata Internazionale della Pace indetta dalle Nazioni Unite, l’artist talk Pace e Guerra attraverso le lenti della fotografia. Il preambolo alla Costituzione dell’UNESCO dichiara che poiché le guerre hanno
origine nello spirito degli uomini è nello spirito degli uomini che si debbono innalzare le difese della pace.

di pace. L’Associazione Italiana Giovani per l’UNESCO, comitato Lombardia, nella cornice di Palazzo Moriggia sede del Museo del Risorgimento a Milano, avrà l’onore di dialogare con Davide Monteleone, fotografo vincitore di numerosi premi, attualmente residente in Russia, e il fotogiornalista tedesco Kai Wiedenhöfer, il cui focus artistico affronta il tema dei muri che separano nazioni e città per irrisolte motivazioni che spaziano dalla politica, alla religione e all’economia.

QUANDO: sabato 22 settembre ore 16.30
DOVE: Palazzo Moriggia | Museo del Risorgimento -Via Borgonuovo 23, 20121, Milano

"Medio Corso"

In the fall of 2017 I had the pleasure to lead a group of students during a week long masterclass/residency in the area of the Adda river, in the north of Italy, organised  by ZTC and coordinated by Adrea Biffi. The result of this experience became the book "Medio Corso", a photographic investigation and an anthology of novels curated by Wu Ming 2 inspired by the landscape and the people of the river.

Volga on National Geographic

"Russia’s mighty Volga river stretches 2,193 miles (3,530 kilometers) from the northwest of Moscow down to the Caspian Sea in the south. It’s the country’s principle waterway and the historic cradle of the entire state. Along Volga’s banks, Ivan the Terrible began Russia’s expansion during the 16th century, the Battle of Stalingrad claimed over 1.5 million lives in Volgograd in the early 1940s, and Vladimir Lenin was born in 1870 in Ulyanovsk. And now, in 2018, four cities along this monumental stretch of water will host World Cupmatches.

While football fever may have consumed large parts of Russia during the tournament, Italian photographer Davide Monteleone, who spent 10 days exploring cities and towns along the Volga during the event, was most interested in the region’s deep-rooted culture and customs."
