A wide selection of works by Paolo Pellegrin, curated by Giuseppe Prode.

Broken Landscape involves a number of themes that have occupied Paolo Pellegrin from 1995 until today: war, exodus of refugees, earthquakes, pandemics and poverty.
The various levels on which Pellegrin concentrates in his work – the humanistic, the political, the historical, and the aesthetic, to cite but a few – can be found in all the photographs in the exhibition, from the spread of Aids in Uganda in 1995, to the wars in Bosnia, Iraq, Afghanistan, Lebanon, and even in Guantananmo, and the death of Pope John Paul II.

Much space is dedicated to the Israel-Palestine conflict, a theme to which Pellegrin has returned many time: including images of the occupied territories, Yasser Arafat’s funeral, the evacuation of the Gaza Strip, right up to the war in Lebanon last summer.

They are photographs that pay attention to facts which are often forgotten or ignored, when the interest of public opinion and the media diminishes and indeed disappears. They show a “broken landscape”, in which the geopolitical boundaries are built upon those of humanity.
