Description

Italian-Venezuelan Paolo Gasparini is a key figure in contemporary documentary photography. Known for his emblematic images of conflict zones--the border between the United States and Mexico, the Zapatista territory (from Morelos to Chiapas), the Sierra Tarahumara and Mexico City--Gasparini weaves an ambiguous narrative by fusing contemporary and traditional themes, with the aim of demonstrating that photography can be an act of political conscience. With an uncompromising gaze, Gasparini celebrates the vitality of these regions while denouncing the tragedies that besiege them. Superbly designed by Yvette Garcia, "Paolo Gasparini: The Supplicant" presents a wholly unique vision with a decade's worth of images taken throughout Latin America. Poetic and unflinching, Gasparini's images confront the stark reality, which is equal parts beauty and brutality. Included in this survey is a text by Mexican journalist Juan Villoro.
