revisan’s passion for photography developed over 20 years ago and has concentrated on early photography (1840s and 1850s) and on surreal photographs in which, as Walter Guadagnini writes, “the depiction of the world is replaced by its invention”.
However, the truly unusual feature of the collection – and the particular point of interest for the visitor – lies in the wide span of years it covers: from the fascinating early daguerrotypes, via a line marked by famous masterpieces and surprising discoveries, down to the latest works by such artists as Vanessa Beecroft.
In this itinerary, there are plenty of great names in photography, together with artists who worked with photography. In particular, it is worth noting the following: Lewis Carroll, Man Ray, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Wilhelm von Glöden, Margaret Bourke-White, Lee Friedlander, Irving Penn, Weegee, Helmut Newton, Diane Arbus, Nobuyoshi Araki, Nan Goldin, Robert Mapplethorpe, Cindy Sherman, Olivo Barbieri, Vik Muniz, Marina Abramović and Andres Serrano.
