With the reopening of Palazzo Reale in Milan, culture also returns to Piazza del Duomo with all the exhibitions that had been stopped due to the emergency. Among these also Prima, Donna. Margaret Bourke-White, extended until May 16, 2021.
The exhibition, inaugurated last September, celebrates one of the most representative and emblematic figures of photojournalism.
The access to the exhibition is to quotas and suggested a reservation aimed at protecting the safety and health visitors.
Pioneer of information and image, Margaret Bourke-White has explored every aspect of photography: from the first images dedicated to the world of industry and corporate projects, to the great reports for the most important newspapers such as Fortune and Life; from the visual chronicles of the Second World War, to the famous portraits of Stalin first and then of Gandhi (known during the reportage on the birth of the new India and portrayed shortly before his death); from South Africa of Apartheid to America of racial conflicts up to the thrill of aerial views of the American continent.
Over 100 images, coming from the Life archive in New York and divided into 11 thematic groups which, in a chronological vision, trace the thread of Margaret Bourke-White’s existential path and show her visionary and narrative capacity, able to compose Dense and dazzling photographic “stories”.
