Don McCullin in Rome, the exhibition
Don McCullin in Rome collects all the phases of the photographer’s work, up to the most recent shots where a surprising overall vision emerges.
The exhibition in Rome exhibits also the series dedicated to the Roman Empire, started in the 2000’s.
Don McCullin brings Rome in Rome: these photographs offer a new perspective on the history of the City, rereading it, as already in the Vita Dulcis and Roma exhibitions, in portrait, in relation to historical times or different cultures.
McCullin investigates, in his artistic research, different themes: the pain of the images of subordinate England, the wars in the world, the peace of the Somerset landscapes where McCullin recovers when struggling with the pain caused by the conflicts of which he is a spectator.
In the exhibition, pain and peace coexist in McCullin’s photographic investigation.
