Fontana's photographic exhibition lands in Belgrade
Franco Fontana 

(AGI) Belgrade, Oct 11 - After stopping in Split, Rijeka, Zagreb and Lignano Sabbiadoro, Franco Fontana's exhibition "Grand Tour Italia" has arrived in Belgrade. The photographic exhibition, organised in cooperation with the Centro di ricerca e archiviazione della fotografia (CRAF) of the Region Friuli Venezia Giulia, presents Fontana's very peculiar photographic style based on colour. This technique allows him to portray the Italian landscape in the tonalities of Renaissance landscapes. The event, promoted by the Italian Cultural Institute in Belgrade in conjunction with CRAF, will open on 15 October and will run till 4 November. As early as in the 70s, Fontana started working at developing his own essential style based on colour backgrounds. Through his eye, Italian landscapes appear bathed in a translucid hue that together with solid colours fill the space. It is the language of a photographic style centred on a poetical view of colour, which transforms nature in abstract shapes. In 1978, he presented "Skyline", his first book. Since then, he has become an internationally acclaimed artist. In 1999, for CRAF and the Solomon R Guggenheim Museum in New York, he taught photography to primary school students. He has also collaborated with the Pompidou Centre in Paris, as well as the Ministries of Culture of France and Japan. In 2006, he was presented with a Laurea Honoris Causa in Design at the Politecnico di Torino. From the 70s to date he has published more than 40 books in Italy, France, Swizerland, Spain, the U.S.A. and Japan. His photos have also been on show in over 400 solo and collective exhibitions in museums and galleries all over the world. (AGI). .
