Paolo Pellegrin - UN'ANTOLOGIA

Paolo Pellegrin is known today as one of the world’s leading documentary and conflict photographers.  The career‐spanning exhibition PAOLO PELLEGRIN – UN’ANTOLOGIA at the House of Photography sheds new light on his creative vision. UN’ANTOLOGIA is a fitting tribute to Pellegrin’s lifelong engagement with the human condition, but it also serves as an important reminder that reportage photography was, is, and always will be far more than simply a medium for news and information.
