Curated by: Filippo Maggia

The Mountain Tale features the giant Ansel Adams with his black-and-white photographs of landscapes of American national parks, true totems of the twentieth century; Martin Chambi, one of South America’s first important photographers, with his Peruvian Andes steeped in ethnographic and historical documentation; Vittorio Sella, one of the most extraordinary historical mountain photographers, committed to documenting mountaineering explorations like no other. And finally, with an original portfolio in progress commissioned by Fondazione Brescia Musei on the Brescian Alps, the ‘home’ mountain imprinted by Axel Hütte, among the most important representatives of contemporary German photography. The exhibition represents the spearhead of the 6th Edition of the Brescia Photo Festival, an event produced by Fondazione Brescia Musei, for the extraordinary 2023 edition named after the theme Capital, and also involving Mo.Ca – Center for New Cultures.
