Racconto di un pittore: Antonio Calderara

by Giorgio Lucini

Serie iconografica n. 4
These photographs show that there is still happiness for someone.
Photographer and publisher Giorgio Lucini offers a discrete look at the life of artist Antonio Calderara, whose output--minimalist in scope and abstract in representation--spans several decades over the course of his career. Lucini's understated black and white photographs present the artist in early family portraits, contemplative snapshots and hushed still lifes, while at other times depicting the artist in motion through candid street photography. Features an introduction by screenwriter Cesare Zavattiti and a biographical notes by Giorgio Lucini. Unpaginated. 3.25" by 5". 

Text in Italian. 

Published by Giorgio Lucini. Milan, Italy. 1969.
