Curated by Marco Delogu, Facing the Camera documents a wide swath of Italian life between 1968 and 2018 through the eyes of 20 photographers including Jacopo Benassi, Gianni Berengo Gardin, Lisetta Carmi, Marco Delogu, Guido Guidi, Ugo Mulas, Moira Ricci, Ferdinando Scianna, Paolo Ventura, and others. These portraits challenge our assumptions about Italian identity, which has been shaped by its eventful history, fluid borders, and a surprisingly heterogeneous population. Following presentations in London and New York, Facing the Camera opens in Toronto with a free public reception on Wednesday February 13 at 6:30 PM.
