Paris : Italy by Bernard Plossu at MEP


What a wonderful trip! Bernard Plossu’s vision of Italy is now on display at the Maison Européenne de la Photographie in Paris. From Piedmont to Sicily, he surveyed the entire country starting in the 1970s, following in the footsteps of his ancestors. All of Italy fascinates him: the people in the street, the monuments, the landscapes, often when the skies are cloudy. “Bad weather is good weather for a photographer,” says Plossu. His Italy is strangely full and uninhabited, with architecture predominant and human presence more suggested than seen. This is a rich set of photographs where we see Plossu’s mastery of framing.
