Raymond Depardon: Modern Life

Jan 27 – Apr 10, 2022
Viale Emilio Alemagna, 6, 20121 Milano MI

Since the early 1960s, the French movie director and photojournalist Raymond Depardon has been giving us reality distilled. When he was a young man, he traveled to Algeria, Biafra, Vietnam, and Chad, where he captured jarring scenes of conflict and war. In the 1970s, Depardon famously covered the kidnapping of Françoise Claustre, the French ethnologist, in Chad: he took black-and-white photographs that show her seated on the floor of a hut, her captor nearby with a rifle. Now 79, Depardon has 25 documentary films to his name, works that shed light on many subjects, including farm life and psychiatry. Co-organized with the Fondation Cartier and the artist Jean-Michel Alberola, this exhibition looks at interactions between French and Italian culture. It is Depardon’s first solo show in Italy. —Elena Clavarino
