Its small theatrical feature situations have in common derision, the absurdity of the situation and a humanoid humor that sometimes recalls Eugène Ionesco and his theater of the absurd. He has been represented in numerous international exhibitions and on photo-festivals and fairs in Europe. This year, in honour of his eightieth birthday, Postcart edizioni and Filigranes  published a retrospective of his work in the photo-book Mister G..

Félix Nadar

Félix Nadar was the pseudonym of Gaspard-Félix Tournachon (6 April 1820 – 21 March 1910), a French photographer, caricaturist, journalist, novelist and balloonist. Nadar opened his first photography studio in 1854, but he only practiced for six years. He focused on the psychological elements of photography, aiming to reveal the moral personalities of his sitters rather than make attractive portraits. Bust- or half-length poses, solid backdrops, dramatic lighting, fine sculpturing, and concentration on the face were trademarks of his studio. His use of eight-by-ten-inch glass-plate negatives, which were significantly larger than the popular sizes of daguerreotypes, acccentuated those effects.

He began his photographic work in 1972. In particular he focused his work on graphic image and he directed his research toward the compositional analysis of various  urban aspects.
The author wanted to dedicate to the city of Rome his images, featured by an almost old taste, but, more importantly, he wanted to take those 'magical atmosphere' which recalls  unchanging elements, expressions of places, of  history and of ancient culture of Rome.

Chris Rain


Chris Rain was born in Rome where he currently lives. He is a visual artist who since the inception of his artistic career has been recurring to different media, i.e. music, photography, each used with its proper uniqueness.
He is a self-taught artist who seeks to avoid any categorization or cliché. In his opinion the photographic practice is just a way to achieve self-expression by means of truth's manipulation. Unawareness, past's reminiscences, desires are the pivotal issues on which is focused his research as artist.

Afterwards, the 5-man Signal Corps camera team of which he was a part was attached to various combat units fighting in France, Germany and Austria; he took some of the first motion picture footage of the Dachau concentration camp. Rosenblum was one of the most decorated WWII photographers, awarded the Silver Star, the Bronze Star, five battle stars, the Purple Heart and a Presidential Unit Citation. The D-Day Museum in New Orleans honored Rosenblum and The Simon Wiesenthal Center recognized him as a liberator of Dachau. His photographic career spanned major currents of the twentieth century; he photographed the immigrant experience in America on New York’s Lower East Side, WWII, Spanish Civil War Refugees in France, people in East Harlem, Haiti and the South Bronx.
