Cara Romero: Indigenous Futurity at Fotografiska

Fotografiska is pleased to present a selection of recent photographs by Cara Romero. In this body of work, Romero creates surreal and vibrant portraits that enact an Indigenous Futurity, tethered to Indigenous sciences and knowledges. In the artist’s own words: “The work I’ve made within the genre of Indigenous Futurisms really came from a deep creative space of wanting to play, of wanting to be imaginative, of wanting to talk about those connections to time and the power of Indigenous women.”

  • Photo Exhibition: Letizia Battaglia – Sono Io

    2023-04-29 – 2023-11-01 · Italy
    Photo Exhibition: Letizia Battaglia – Sono Io

    Letizia Battaglia today has taken on a fundamental significance in the history of international photography. In “Une histoire mondiale des femmes photographes,” by Luce Lebart and Marie Robert, Laetitia Guillemin recalls Letizia Battaglia especially during the years of her collaboration with the Palermo daily L’Ora, during the bloody war of the Mafia in the 1970s and 1980s. Sono io is not a statement Letizia Battaglia would have ever said. We do so, extrapolating it from a sentence of hers much more articulate phrase that appeared in an interview a few years ago. With this exhibition we maintain the tradition of breaking schemes, erasing themes, ignoring chronologies, and constructing a polyphonic work, as representative as possible, offering a unified vision of a body of work that has lasted almost five decades. Photography and everyday life come together in a single path that highlights the extraordinary visual sensitivity, and the courage to be at the distance of a punch or a caress to conquer the image, often achieved in extreme contexts but always full of dignity. Photography reached Letizia Battaglia thanks to a series of fortuitous elements and becomes an important tool for her emancipation as a woman and mother.
