The Mourning City - Peter de Ru and Salvino Campos in Rio


Salvino Campos (Brazil) and Peter de Ru (Sweden)
 
"The Mourning City" curated by Peter Cottino and Mario Franco.
One of the themes of the exhibition is the "dignity," which reflects an ancient Naples found and represented in the 32 photographic works by people and places far away. The project is inspired by the book "Letters from a Mourning City" by Axel Munthe about Naples in the time of cholera. What emerges is a picture of a sufferingcity,which is still alive and dignified, in a metaphorical space of ...a
sad human condition.
Gallery "Cândido Portinari" of UERJ from 17th October 17 to 21st November.
