The best 145 authors brought the two photo volumes to life are recalled:

  • Pasolini – The Unmasked Face.
    Curated and introduced by writer Paolo Patui, it includes photographs inspired by the film iconography of Pasolini the director, particularly the Face. Six evocative stills from Pasolini’s cinematography become an aesthetic/thematic canvas from which the photographers were inspired: the face of awe, innocence, solitude, mystical mystery, violence, power, and despair.
  • Pasolini – Mythography
    Curated and introduced by Professor Enrico Medda, it offers a reinterpretation of Pasolinian themes such as nonconformity and transgression, religion and the sacred, nature and roots, modernity and periphery, through the key of (re)reading mythology by means of photography. Pasolini’s work, in fact, connects to the ancient in multiple ways, beginning with explorations of classical literature and ancient theater: Sophocles’ Oedipus the King, Euripides’ Medea, Aeschylus’ Oresteia.
    The volume is a special issue of the Mythography series of the same name conceived in 2021 by Exhibit Around and loosely inspired by Greek and Roman mythology.
