45 Winners

80,408 images. 5,034 photographers. 126 different countries.

45 photographers – winners and brave ‘has-beens’.

RS Art Advisory visited the 60th World Press Photo Contest in Rome. An emotional and pushing for debate insight of what has been shaking the world during the last 5 years and how it influences the present society. How people survive and how nature struggles. The exhibition makes you first think of what is over-the-horizon and even beyond common sense. You will not admire bright colors or the cute creatures of our planet. You will face diverse feelings and discover the reality which certain people create and other people struggle. On the other hand, the photographers introduce to us some undiscovered corners of our world and the way people have their moment and enjoy simple things. Amazing.

Worthwhile to experience the admirable journalistic aspect at Palazzo delle Esposizioni in Rome – a saying much exhibition which is itself a cross-section of the present day society.

Dolce Vita - Paparazzi treasures

La Dolce Vita..The 1950s and ’60s, Rome was the global epicentre of the film industry. A cosier relationship existed back then, with trusted photographers given the most intimate access to celebrities at play. Marcello Geppetti beyond any tiny shade of a doubt was the king of paparazzi of that time. Two of his shots were considered among the thirty most famous photos. The photos of Audrey Hepburn in a bakery, Brigitte Bardot’s nude and the kiss between Liz Taylor and Richard Burton both married to others at the time were published on Time Magazine, Life and Vogue.
He was a member of a group of photographers that inspired Federico Fellini to create the character of a news photographer named Paparazzo in the film “La Dolce Vita” in 1960. If Rome was the golden age of the paparazzi, then that age is dead. We are further down the road of decay and, in this post-post-modern world, those first intrusive photos are now artefacts of high art.

Palenqueros drums on 57th Biennale in Venice

Dear friends, in anticipation of 57th Biennale di Venezia we’re happy to introduce the most interesting participants and their unique stories. We’ll start with Marcos ÁVILA FORERO, who was born in Paris in 1983 but has never forgotten his Colombian roots which make his art true and impressive. Explorer and adventurer, he traveled the world to embrace cultural differences and go deep into migration motives. His amazing journeys resulted into Palenqueros exhibition. It displays a set of beautiful traditional Palenqueros drums made by French artisans in Dordogne region. The Palenqueros were the escaped slaves that settled in South America and Dordogne was the center of black slave trade in France in the 18th century. The Palenqueros were originally Bantu, African people, who are today one of the largest groups seeking to immigrate to Europe. These symbolic cartographic drums beat out the rhythm of historical evidence which proves that the immigration process and cultural interfusion have turned full circle.
We’re excited to see a show of the artist in Venice very soon.
