The Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art opens Nino Migliori Imagined Landscapes. The Places of Morandi
The Estorick Collection of Modern Italian Art opens Nino Migliori Imagined Landscapes. The Places of Morandi, an exhibition on view 16 January – 7 April 2013, of delicately reworked Polaroid images by the renowned Italian photographer Nino Migliori.
Created during the mid 1980s, these works form a series entitled Imagined Landscapes: The Places of Morandi and explore the Grizzana landscape beloved by Morandi and immortalised in so many of his works. Best known for his black and white neo-realist images of life in 1950s Italy, these works reveal a different side to Migliori’s research in which the photograph is merely the starting point for an image that aspires not simply to document a moment in time or a specific location, but to express something of its emotional resonance.
