Un Sedicesimo 26
Energie rinnovabili – Padri e figli
Energie rinnovabili – Padri e figli (Renewable Energy – Fathers and sons) is the title of Un Sedicesimo 26, which includes 16 pictures by French photographer Grégoire Korganow taken from the series at the Triennale in Milan on show in an exhibition curated by Alberto Pizzati Caiani. Two subjects per photograph stand out against the black background: fathers and sons supporting one another, looking at one another, one beside the other; linked by the inexhaustible energy that runs through the generations and is handed down from man to man in a continuous, endless flow. The vivid, powerful pictures by Grégoire Korganow interpret this bond as it evolves into a unique and multifaceted transgenerational portrait.
