8 Jan-14 Feb 2009. Eric Serafini revives the atmosphere of the mythical 1920s, revisiting the shots by Edward Steichen (1879-1973) turning them into large scale, colourful paintings, underlining their pictorial quality and precision. Steichen was a photographer of divas who worked for Vogue and Vanity Fair in the 1920s. He was an exponent of the pictorialist movement and tried to reproduce the effects and the characteristics of painting on his photographs. His photographic sets, often placed inside the living rooms of the upper middle class, were enriched with details of the life of that epoch. On display, along with the famous portraits of Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo and the images from the haute couture, are some external shots of the streets and skyscrapers of Manhattan.
