Camagüey, Cuba, Apr 3. – Africa: Metaphors of the existence is the title of the exhibition of Italian photographers Francesco Brusoni and Guido Bianchi to be opening on April 18th at 5:00 pm, at Julián Morales Gallery, the Camagüey subsidiary of the National Union of Writers and Artists of Cuba (UNEAC).
Brusoni and Bianchi, who stand out, apart from artists behind the lens, like authors of dissimilar books published, traveled some time ago to deep Africa, the urban one, where the heart of the third continent of the world beats by geographic extension.
On the other hand, Francesco traveled through Ethiopia to capture with his camera the life in the stone cities, the practice of Coptic Christianity (the oldest in all of Africa), the customs and rhythms of life in these parts. Guido went to Benin, the other half of the African Yoruba heart.
The curator Pavel Alejandro Barrios that took pictures there of the clay villages, the villages on stilts on the rivers, their happy children, the Yoruba rites and their characters.”
There are 40 full-color photos, printed on solid support of 60 x 40 cm, a feast for the eyes and the soul.
Alejandro Barrios -curator of the exhibition-encouraged the artists to write a 24-minute film, halfway between photo story, cinema and video art, with the same name as the exhibition.
The curator states that more than 100 photos are screened in this material, along with a story told by Italian residents in Cuba.
The presentation of the audiovisual will be in charge of the film critic Armando Pérez Padrón and highlights the sound and fantastic animations of some details of the photos. (Translated by Linet Acuña Quilez)
