Lorenzo Vitturi will speak about his exhibition, Dalston Anatomy, during the opening reception.
Born in Venice in 1980, Vitturi currently lives in London and Milan. He graduated in 2004 from the Istituto Europeo di Design in Rome with a Master’s Degree in Photography and Design. After a two year residency at Fabrica, the Benetton Group social communication research centre in Trevisio Italy (2005-2007), he worked in Rome for a few years as a cinema set painter. The monograph Dalston Anatomy was published in 2013 by SPBH Editions and named as one of the best photobooks of the year by The New York Times, The Guardian, Martin Parr and Erik Kessels, among others. The book was shortlisted for both Aperture’s First PhotoBook Award and MACK’s First Book Award.
Solo exhibitions of Dalston Anatomy were presented at FOAM, Amsterdam (2013), The Photographers’ Gallery, London (2014) and Yossi Mil Gallery, New York (2104). Vitturi received the Photography Grand Prix at the 2014 Hyères International Festival of Fashion and Photography and a solo exhibition of his new work is currently on view there.
