Curated by Sanni Agostinelli, the exhibition showcases the work of photographer and alumnus Lorenzo Lanzo of the IIF Biennale Professional Photography Program.
The pictures on display are the result of an editorial shot for Cap74024 magazine, which showcases designer Fabio Bigondi’s Son of a Gun series, inspired by Richard Mosse’s famous Kodak Arochrome film taken during the war in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
Son of a Gun costume is a clear condemnation of contemporary glorified guns. In fact, the garments were adorned with embroidery, embellishments and graphics depicting guns, grenades and machine guns, and underscored society’s admiration for weapons.
Looks almost overwhelmed by clothing, silhouetted like a statue in a rural arid setting, emphasizing the difference between the bright colors of the clothing and the grays of the surrounding nature comparison. Color is a common thread: some clothes are dark and angular, while others are bright iridescent, showing the transition between reality and total fantasy.
