  • Paolo Gasparini

    Paolo Gasparini

    Paolo Gasparini (Gorizia, Italy, 1934) is one of the most prominent photographers on the Latin American scene. Strongly influenced by neorealism, he moved to Caracas in 1955, where he began his career in photography. Gasparini stands out because his photographs of the great metropolises of the Americas (Sao Paolo, Mexico City, Los Angeles, and Caracas) have the ability to establish a strangely human link between the cities and the behavior of the individuals who live there. From September 29, we will have the chance to see this for ourselves in the retrospective offered by Fundación MAPFRE.
