A new book, with a strong visual approach on Mario Giacomelli, the great Italian master, published with the participation of his niece Katiuscia Biondi Giacomelli.Contrejour Editions published the first major monograph of Mario Giacomelli in 1988 and this new work offers a re-reading of his life and work, created with love and first hand attention with the help of his niece.In 1975 Bill Brandt selected Giacomelli's work for his major exhibition, The Land, shown at the Victoria and Albert Museum, and in the mid1980s, GIacomelli began a series of retrospectives with one for the Ffotogallery in Cardiff. Fame followed and his acclaimed image, again taken from above, of seminarians exuberantly celebrating together, brought his work to the attention of an appreciative e public.This new book brilliantly presents through a bold visual approach the indivisibility of Giacomelli's work, in which symbolic stances, graphics, autobiographical and sentimental aspects link together to transform the past and present. His work unfolds in a series of double-page spreads and mixes well known images with others that are previously unpublished. Reports, landscapes and portraits are superimposed to abstraction to display the vision of a modern artist, always in partnership with his world, and whose photographs can be seen as the film of a lifetime.
