A frame for Mario

Frame is the aluminum frame for the photos of Mario Carrieri at the exhibition “Around Photography” at the Jacqueline Vodoz & Bruno Danese Foundation. When I spoke with Mario – an icon of italian photography – he asked me not to put any of my design in front of his B&W prints and to avoid colors. I was impressed by his “Natura morta con drappo” and I decided to augment their dramatic effect with an inclined solid projection behind, thus unbalancing their perspective from the pint of view of the observer. Our pieces were hung in the main saloon of the Foundation – a beautiful milanese apartment – next to Ettore Sottsass & Johanna Grawunder, Paolo Rizzatto & Gabriele Basilico.
