On display, the diverse materials making up the Schezen Fond – from this year part of the museum’s Photography Collections: from the photographer’s own silver gelatin prints to the large format negatives and through to the invaluable colour slides, together with large-format photographs from the original negatives.
“Architecture, Silence and Light”
18 December 2019 – 02 June, 2020
MAXXI – National Museum of XXI Century Arts
Via Guido Reni 4A , Roma
Schezen’s images lead us on a path that from silence moves towards the light, traversing themes dear to Louis Kahn such as order, form, wonder and silence.
The more classical photographs of architecture, which devote attention to the changing luminescent qualities of space and Kahn’s rigorous design research through his best-known works, are joined by more “daring” visions and alienating details in which Schezen demonstrated an authorial interpretation of the themes of light, shadow and form, paradigms shared by architecture and photography.
