Late, Modern and Censored

Maria Vittoria Backhaus - Fotoromanzootto - Roma 1963


I just got an email about LateAndModern Gallery about their latest project. The body of work focuses on a number of "unexpected" photographs, from the 60s to the 90s, by some of Italy's major fashion photographers; Maria Vittoria Backhaus, Alfa Castaldi (husband of the late Anna Piaggi), Gian Paolo Barbieri, Giovanni Gastel and others.
The images represent the authors personal feelings, his cultural roots and sensitivity, focusing on photography rather than fashion or style. Furthermore these selected works have, for some reason, been censored or refused by publishers.

My favourite works are Alfa Castaldi's Cubism portfolio; his research on a possible photo-cubist technique.
