Migliori began photography in 1948, joining the Bolognese photographic club post-war and delved into self-study and research on photography. His work has always been experimental and explorative. He attempted realist, formalist approaches, random themes of connecting to humanity, as well as lines of research that would all be carried out to this day. He was noted for a Bauhaus-inspired image, the "Cliches verres".

The photographer always liked to surprise his audience, but it's his researches in photography that stand out. The search has never stopped, asking the purpose and existence of photography and how it is considered a language. To Migliori, it's like alchemy.

The show Nino Migliori: The Matter of Dreams opens at the European House of Photography in Paris today, and will run through February 25.
