He is one of those photographers who, in the last fifteen years, has had the greatest influence on the younger generation. His grainy black and white, his images stretched between fact and fiction, the perception of a floating universe in which time is always a key issue made it possible for him to impose a distinctly different universe. He does not have a particular genre, but is given to images that come to him whenever and wherever, at random. In the end, he takes few photographs, but those that he does take are terribly intense. For his first exhibition in Asia, he is releasing the dummy of his upcoming book on the little community of Cabbage town. Between tenderness and violence, ruin and poetry, images of children and a walk and musical ballad, he takes on the world always with the same freedom of approach, in sizes, contrasts, treatment of lights , framings, little sequences and individual pictures. A fine time to look back at the work of his youth, the work that founded his career, and wherein the writing is already perfectly recognizable.
