Black as the Bright Morning
A specialist in the history of photography and curator of the exhibition THE UNSEEN. From Informalist painting to the postwar photobook [1945-1965], Horacio Fernández reveals the photographic poses that came about as a reaction to the disasters of World War II. Photography documented the ruins of the cities that had been bombed and portrayed the beauty and horror combined in the atomic bombs of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Among the numerous photobooks is Chizu - The Map (1965) by Kikiji Kawada, which brings symbolic realism face to face with abstraction.
