    CATANIA - A photography exhibit in Catania will put more than 100 photos on display for the first time, images that reveal the suspension of time during the lockdown due to the Covid pandemic.

    The intimate, "stolen" images - which include a child chasing his shadow, a girl daydreaming under the covers, and an empty bench immersed in fog - will go on display starting Saturday, July 18, at the Palazzo della Cultura, in an exhibition that runs through October 4 in Via Vittorio Emanuele II 121.

    The show is sponsored by the Oelle Foundation and co-organised by the City of Catania, and reveals "the complex social dynamics the world is experiencing on a daily basis in the time of coronavirus". The 122 photographs on display are printed in 50 x 70 cm format and each is accompanied by text from the photographer.

    Photographers in the exhibition include Mario Cresci, born in Chiavari, Italy in 1942, who reinvented photography and elevated it to the level of visual art; and Michael Christopher Brown, born in Skagit Valley, Washington, in 1978, an American photojournalist whose work has appeared in National Geographic, Time, and the New York Times Magazine.

    The exhibition is accompanied by a catalog curated by Carmelo Nicosia and edited by the Oelle Foundation.
