An exhibition in Naples, that honors the longevity of photojournalism. The wonderful location tribunali138 will host « erased », an exhibition of Edoardo Castaldo‘s works, curated by Peppe Tortora. The solo show will present some of Castaldo’s most significative photographies that covered historical events like the Arab Spring, the Israel-Palestine crisis or the recent Ucraine crisis, many of them already published in newspapers and magazines such as Time, Newsweek, Le Monde, Der Spiegel, … And that’s part of the concept behind the show. Does time erase the symbolic power of an image? The exhibition seems to show that photographies need to be revealed after a time, not only because they keep their fascinating power of documenting the truth, but also because they gain a touch of magic.
