Domingo Milella

"It's hard to talk about photography without facing issues of time, memory and death - not as stereotypical archetypes, but as challenging and malleable entities of culture and nature." Domingo Milella

Domingo Milella's first monograph has been published by Steidl. The book is a photographic journey from his hometown in the outskirts of Bari in southern Italy, to Mexico City, Cairo, Ankara, Anatolia, Sicily, Tunisia, and as far as Mesopotamia. Milella's subject is cities and their borders, cemeteries and villages, caves and homes, tombs and hieroglyphs - signs of man's presence on earth.

Milella's interest is the overlap between civilisation and nature, and how landscape and architecture are invested with individual and collective memory. These photographs emerge from and challenge classical ideas of landscape in art history, and seek an alternative iconography in which an almost forgotten past coexists with the present.

There will be a book signing following our free event on 28 March at 15.00. If you would like to attend the event please contact rsvp@grimaldigavin.com
